The State Cabinet of Bihar on 16 April 2013 gave its nod to the Home Department’s proposal to grant 35 percent reservation for women in the recruitment of constables and sub-inspectors in reserved and unreserved categories of the state.

The state cabinet meeting was presided over by the Chief Minister of the State, Nitish Kumar. The reservation for women would be in addition to the three per cent already existing for women belonging to backward class. The decision is the follow up of the state’s recent women centric policies to uplift women in the state.

Before this, the state cabinet approved quota of 50 percent in cooperatives for women in the state.
