Lok Sabha is now taking up The Constitution (One Hundred and Twenty-Seventh Amendment) Bill, 2021 for discussion and passing. The bill seeks to restore the power of States and Union Territories to make their own OBC lists.

Moving the bill, Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Dr Virendra Kumar said, it will empower the state in preparing the OBC list.
