The 73rd and 74th Constitutional Amendments were introduced in 1992 and were meant to facilitate greater decentralization at the rural and urban level respectively They did so through providing legal status to local assemblies and entrusting them with greater functions and powers The inclusion of certain social categories that had historically been marginalized from policy making and implementing structures was fundamental to the project of decentralization These social categories were the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and women While the 73rd Amendment applies to the Panchayati Raj system, the 74th Amendment applies to Municipal Corporations, Municipal Councils and Nagar Panchayats depending on the size of the city The 74th Amendment states:

“Not less than one – third including the number of seats reserved for women belonging to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes of the total number of seats to be filled by direct election in every Municipality shall be reserved for women and such seats may be allotted by rotation to different constituencies in a Municipality
