The case of R.C. Poudyal vs Union of India largely deals with the issue of reservation in the then newly constituted Legislative Assembly of Sikkim. The case focuses on the constitutional validity of the reservations made by the Parliament in the state of Sikkim and determines the concerns related to such representations. In order to fathom the context for an argument the court largely relies on, it is imperative to know the historical circumstances due to which these reservations were put into question.​
