In India seats are reserved for women in:

(A) Lok Sabha

(B) State Legislative Assemblies

(C) Cabinets

(D) Panchayati Raj Bodies

 

Answer:

So, the correct answer is (d).

 

Explanation:

Women’s organisations and activists have been demanding a similar reservation of at least one-third of seats in Lok Sabha and State Assemblies for women.

A bill with the proposal has been pending before the parliament for women than a decade . But there are no censuses over this among all the political parties. The bill has not passed.

One-third of seats in local government bodies - in panchayat and municipalities are now reserved for women.

 

Let’s check all the options

  • (a) Lok sabha - A bill with a proposal has been pending before the parliament for more than a decade. But there is no consensus over this among all the political parties. The bill has not been passed.
  • (b) state legislative assembly - A bill with a proposal has been pending before the parliament
  • (c) cabinets - In the government, cabinets are largely all male even when a woman becomes the chief minister or the prime minister. No seats are reserved.
  • (d) panchayat raj bodies - One-third of seats in local government bodies - in panchayat and municipalities- are now reserved for women. So, this is correct.
