Abstract

The Constitution of India through the preamble, the fundamental rights, fundamental duties and directive principles of state policy reflects the principle of gender equality. The constitution not only grants equality to women, but also empowers the state to adopt measures of positive discrimination in favour of women. Several action plans have been initiated by the government which will translate the objective of empowering women into concrete action and measurable goals. One significant step taken by the Govt. of India in this direction is implementation of the 73rd Constitutional Amendment Act. Through this Act, after Part VIII of the constitution, some provisions have been inserted. Accordingly Art 243 D states that not less than one third of the total number of seats shall be reserved for women (including scheduled caste and scheduled tribe women) During the Chief Minister Ship of Biju Pattnaik 33.3 % of reservation for women was made in 1992 PRI elections in Odisha. In 2011 the reservation for women was further extended to fifty percent.
