Election and Representation Case Study
Case Study Questions
Read the passage carefully and answer the following questions:
Our Constitution makers were aware of this difficulty and the need to provide a way to ensure fair and just representation to the oppressed social groups. This issue was debated even before independence and the British government had introduced ‘separate electorates’. This system meant that for electing a representative from a particular community, only those voters would be eligible who belong to that community. In the Constituent Assembly, many members expressed a fear that this will not suit our purposes. Therefore, it was decided to adopt the system of reserved constituencies. In this system, all voters in a constituency are eligible to vote but the candidates must belong to only a particular community or social section for which the seat is reserved.
(i) How is the system of separate electorates different from reserved constituencies?
Ans. Under the system of separate electorates only those voters would be eligible who belong to that community, whereas in a reserved constituency, all voters in a constituency are eligible to vote but the candidates must belong to only a particular community.
(ii) In the Lok Sabha and State Legislative Assemblies the Indian Constitution provides reservation for which groups?
Ans. The reservation is only provided for the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.
(iii) What is the proportion of reserved seats in the Lok Sabha as on 26th January, 2019?
Ans. Of the 543 elected seats in the Lok Sabha, 84 are reserved for Scheduled Castes and 47 are reserved for Scheduled Tribes.
