Answer

Correct Option is 3 only

"The act provides for the reservation of not less than one-third of the total number of seats for women (including the number of seats reserved for women belonging to the SCS and STS). Further, not less than one-third of the total number of offices of Chairpersons in the Panchayats at each level shall be reserved for women. Hence statement 3 is correct. The act also authorizes the legislature of a state to make any provision for reservation of seats in any Panchayat or offices of the chairperson in the panchayat at any level in favor of backward classes. But this is not a compulsory provision and depends on the discretion of the state legislature. Hence statement 2 is not correct. There is no provision for reservation of seats for members of Parliament or State legislatures. Hence statement 1 is not correct. "
