dated April 14, 1955: Constitution Bill passed

The Lok Sabha on April 12 passed the Constitution (Fourth Amendment) Bill, the voting during the third reading being 302 in favour and five against, thus fulfilling the condition that amendments to the Constitution should be passed by a majority of the total membership of the House and a majority of not less than two-thirds of the members present and voting. The one change the Lok Sabha made in the Bill related to the inclusion of "Jenmam" rights prevalent in the States of Madras and Travancore-Cochin, under the definition of "Estate" in Article 31-A. This was a sequel to the demand made by Mr.A.K. Gopalan and Mr. K.A. Damodara Menon, who wanted that power to take over large forest lands in the hands of Jenmies (landlords) should also be included.
