After sub-rule (3) of rule 108-A, the sub-rules shall be inserted namely "(3A) The number of constituencies reserved for Scheduled Tribes, Scheduled Castes and Women for each District Development Council shall be fixed on the basis of prescribed ratio under section 45-A of the Act for each category and applying the principles of mathematic round off with the part fraction of 0.5 and above being rounded off to one and part fraction below 0.5 being ignored for each constituency separately.

In the subsequent elections, the allotment shall be made in the aforesaid manner so that as far as may be practicable, the territorial constituency reserved for the Scheduled Tribes in the previous election shall not be allotted to Scheduled Tribes, and the territorial constituency reserved for the Scheduled Castes shall not be allotted to the Scheduled Castes.

In case the roaster leads to a constituency which is reserved for the elections in a particular year under the same category, the constituency immediately next in serial shall be reserved for that particular roaster point in the subsequent elections.
The roaster for women reservation as prescribed in Rule 3C and 3D above shall also be applicable to the elections of the Chairpersons of the District Development Councils.
