Rajya Sabha passed the Bill with all 215 members voting in its favour. The Lok Sabha scripted history on Wednesday as it passed the Bill reserving a third or 33 per cent of seats for women in national and state legislatures with an overwhelming majority. The Bill seeks to grant one-third of its seats to women in both the Lok Sabha and state assemblies. The Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam is the first bill passed by Lok Sabha during the special session after it shifted to the new Parliament building on Tuesday.
