THE CONSTITUTION (FORTY-FIFTH AMENDMENT)

Statement of Objects and Reasons appended to the Constitution (Forty-fifth Amendment) Bill, 1980 (Bill No. 1 of 1980) which was enacted as THE CONSTITUTION (Forty-fifth Amendment) Act, 1980

STATEMENT OF OBJECTS AND REASONS

Article 334 of the Constitution lays down that the provisions of the Constitution relating to the reservation of seats for the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes and the representation of the Anglo-Indian community by nomination in the Lok Sabha and in the Legislative Assemblies of the States shall cease to have effect on the expiration of a period of thirty years from the commencement of the Constitution. Although the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes have made considerable progress in the last thirty years, the reasons which weighed with the Constituent Assembly in making provisions with regard to the aforesaid reservation of seats and nomination of members, have not ceased to exist. It is, therefore, proposed to continue the reservation for the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes and the representation of Anglo-Indians by nomination for a further period of ten years.

2. The Bill seeks to achieve the above object.
