102nd Constitutional Amendment Act

The 102nd Constitutional Amendment Act passed by the parliament in 2018 inserted Articles 338B and 342A. While the former deals with the National Commission for Backward Classes, the latter is concerned with the power of the President to notify a particular caste as socially economically backward class. The Supreme Court recently held that under this amendment, only the President has the power to identify the SEBCs and list them under Article 242A(1).
