On Monday, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje had announced to withdraw the controversial bill, which had invited sharp criticism and protest from opposition, rights groups and others.

On October 24, amid sharp criticism from all corners, the Bill was referred to the Select Committee for review.

The ordinance, after the Bill's introduction in the Assembly, was valid for a six-week period and it lapsed in December 2017.(PTI)
