The Constitution (126th) Amendment Bill had already been passed by Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on December 10 and 12, respectively.

Later, it was sent to all the states for ratification as it requires the consent of at least 50 per cent of state assemblies before implementation.

The quota was included for 70 years since the enactment of the Constitution on January 26, 1950. Hence, it is scheduled to expire on January 25.

The bill extends reservation for the SCs and STs by another 10 years till January 25, 2030.
