The One Hundred and Fourth Amendment of the Constitution of India, authoritatively known as the Constitution (One Hundred and Fourth Amendment) Act, 2019, broadens the cutoff time for the end for the booking of seats for individuals from Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in the Lok Sabha and State Legislative Assemblies by a time of 10 years.

The reservation of seats for the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes was set to lapse on the 26th of January, 2020 as ordered by the Ninety-Fifth Amendment yet was stretched out for an additional 10 years with the given explanation.

Despite the fact that the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes have gained significant ground over the most recent 70 years, the reasons which weighed with the Constituent Assembly in causing arrangements as to the previously mentioned reservation of seats to have not yet stopped to exist.

Consequently, with the end goal of holding the comprehensive character as imagined by the establishing fathers of the Constitution, it is proposed to proceed with the booking of seats for the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes for an additional ten years for example up to 25th January 2030 - Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Law and Justice.

The revision doesn't, in any case, broaden the time of reservation of the 2 Lok Sabha seats saved for individuals from the Anglo-Indian Community and in this way the act of choosing two individuals from the Anglo-Indian people group by the President of India under the suggestion of the Prime Minister of India was successfully nullified.
