The Karnataka government has issued an ordinance for reserving one-third of the seats of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) council for Other Backward Classes (OBCs). The civic polls, which are pending since 2020, were delayed amid the ward delimitation process by the state government. The total reservation for OBCs and ST/SCs will remain under 50%, the ordinance states.
