Women are the foundational core for a well-developed and integrated society. Women empowerment is a way to enlighten women by acknowledging their self-worth and ability to make choices. Government on the other hand is responsible for a stable society. Government and people need to work together for a better nation. For people to trust the government, they should have power in their hands and have a say in decision-making. This is the main purpose of introduction of Panchayat Raj Institutions as local level government which would enable people to solve their problems with immediate and proficient solutions. Development of a nation needs to base on developing all sectors and classes of society. This led to the reservation system to empower certain classes. For the same reason reservation for women was bought in PRI’s. Several debates were made against reservation but the government’s striving efforts led to a better future for women. This paper aims at analyzing the various reservations made for women through various bills and amendments and the oppositions made against them.
