Correct Answer - Option 1 : 1/3rd seats are reserved for women
The Correct Answer is Option 1.

  • 74th Constitutional Amendment Act of 1992 provides for the reservation of seats for the scheduled castes and the scheduled tribes in every municipality in the proportion of their population in the municipal area.
  • Further, it provides for the reservation of not less than one-third of the total number of seats for women (including the number of seats reserved for a woman belonging to the SCs and the STs).
  • Currently, most of the states extended the women's reservation up to 50%. Kerala became the first state to do so.
  • The state legislature may provide for the manner of reservation of offices of chairpersons in the municipalities for SCs, STs and women.
  • It may also make any provision for the reservation of seats in any Municipality or offices of chairpersons in municipalities in favour of backward classes.
