Union minister Prakash Javadekar said here that the Cabinet gave its nod to withdraw the Bill formally as the draft law had become irrelevant.
The government had recently withdrawn the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation (Second Amendment) Bill 2019 from Lok Sabha.
It was withdrawn from the House as central laws providing quota to the economically backward class are now applicable to the union territories post repeal of special provisions under Article 370.
The Bill was introduced in Lok Sabha by Home Minister Amit Shah in the last session.
On October 31, Jammu and Kashmir was split into the union territories of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh. PTI NAB SMN SMN
