CVC and the government acted outside their authority to unilateraly divest Mr. Verma and appoint M.

10% QUOTA FACES SEVERAL LEGAL AND POLITICAL CHALLENGES What steps are necessary for its implementation? 124th Constitution Amendment Bill, 2019 passed by both Houses of Parliament by a special majority of two- thirds of the members present and voting, which should not be less than one-half of the total strength of the House Bill will also have to be ratified by at least half the State Assemblies. .

If it is not passed by both the Houses within the term of this Lok Sabha, it will lapse
