Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Council rejects 20 % reservation for women in government jobs

Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Council rejects 20 % reservation for women in government jobs
24 June 2016 Current Affairs: Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Council has rejected a private member's bill seeking 20 per cent reservation for women in appointment by direct recruitment in the state on 23 June 2016. 

Shehnaz Ganai of opposition National Conference moved the private member's bill in the Upper House to amend the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Act 2004.

The statistics available in the state show that women are not adequately represented in state services. 

In order to provide equal opportunities and better living conditions to women it is necessary to provide reservation to them in appointment through direct recruitment. 

The total percentage of reservation would not be disturbed by the bill as the women would be provided reservation against available vacancies in each category.

However, the government while opposing the bill said many steps have been taken for the empowerment of the women in J-K and there is no need to pass the Bill. 

There is no such rule in the constitution to employ people on sex reservation. 

The bill was defeated in the House after the ruling PDP and BJP members opposed it. 

The NC legislator said it was unfortunate that on one hand the ruling parties talk of women empowerment but on the other they opposed the bill.
