Special session of the Legislative Assembly has been convened to pass the proposal to extend the reservation of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes for the next 10 years.

Before this, resolutions have to be passed from the legislative assemblies of all states to extend the reservation period to the next 10 years.

For example, there will be a Question Hour at the beginning of the session and there will be a zero call. During the session, a proposal to extend the reservation of SC ST by 10 years will be placed in the House.
The Assembly Secretariat has started preparing for the special session. There will be Question Hour and Zero Hour during the session. The Secretariat has questions, which will be brought up in the session.
