Correct Answer - Option 2 : 20 members from the Lok Sabha and 10 members from the Rajya Sabha

The correct answer is 20 members from the Lok Sabha and 10 members from the Rajya Sabha.

  • The Committee on the Welfare of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes consists of 30 Members – 20 elected by Lok Sabha and 10 by Rajya Sabha from amongst their members in accordance with the System of proportional representation by means of a single transferable vote.
  • The Chairman of the Committee is appointed by the Speaker from amongst the Members of the Committee.
  • A Minister is not eligible for election to the Committee.
  • If a Member after his election to the Committee is appointed a Minister he ceases to be a Member of the Committee from the date of such appointment.
  • The term of the Committee does not exceed one year.

  • The Parliament is too unwieldy a body to deliberate effectively the issues that come up before it.
  • The functions of the Parliament are varied, complex, and voluminous.
  • Moreover, it has neither the adequate time nor necessary expertise to make a detailed scrutiny of all legislative measures and other matters.
  • Therefore, the Parliament is assisted by a number of committees in the discharge of its duties.
  • The Constitution of India makes a mention of these committees at different places, but without making any specific provisions regarding their composition, tenure, functions, etc.
  • Parliamentary committees are of two kinds–Standing Committees and Ad Hoc Committees.
  • The standing committees are permanent (constituted every year or periodically) and work on a continuous basis, while the Ad hoc committees are temporary and cease to exist on completion of the task assigned to them.​
