Reserved seats for Delhi civic polls: Jagmohan Garg

The State election Commission on Tuesday notified reserved seats for elections to the municipal corporations of Delhi, scheduled for April this year. The number of reserved seats has remained unchanged at 46 (out of 272), owing to a marginal but not significant increase in the Scheduled Caste (SC) population of the capital. Half of the seats reserved for SCs and those in the general category have been reserved for women candidates.

Jagmohan Garg also highlights that the delimitation of wards was notified on January 17 and political parties in the city have objected to the subsequent redrawing of borders in some wards, arguing that this “would change the demography in these wards”.
