Against 91 Constitutional Amendment
  • Pratap Singh Rane, who has completed a 50-year tenure as MLA of Goa Legislative Assembly was accorded Lifetime Cabinet Minister Rank by the State Government on 7th January 2022.
  • Goa has a strength of 40 MLAs, so technically only 6 members can become Ministers in the state Government as per the 91st Constitutional Amendment Act 2003. The Act introduced clause 1A in Article 164 that limited the council of ministers to 15% maximum.
  • Under this Provision, the total number of CoM breaches the limit of 6 ministers including the chief minister himself. Thus, the PIL uses this provision. The applicant has also made financial allocation a burden upon the State Government.


Q.1 When was the 91st Constitutional Amendment Act, which limits CoM to 15%, moved?
a. 2002
b. 2003
c. 2004
d. 2005
