Amit Shah to present his first Bill in Parliament

Home minister Amit Shah will table the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Amendment Bill, which had earlier been enforced as an ordinance. It provides for amendments in the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Act, 2004 to bring people living in the areas along the border within the ambit of reservation at par with people living in areas near the Actual Line of Control.

 
The Jammu and Kashmir Reservation (Amendment) Bill, 2019 is aimed at replacing the ordinance to provide 10 percent reservation for economically weaker sections in Jammu and Kashmir. The 10 percent reservation for economically weaker sections was introduced in rest of the country through the 103rd Constitution Amendment in January 2019.
 
Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad is expected to table the Aadhaar and Other Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2019.
 
Extending the benefits of reservation to the residents along the IB has been a long pending demand and is expected to benefit over 3 million residents.
 
Piyush Goyal will introduce the Special Economic Zones (Amendment) Bill, 2019.
