The ruling Congress Government in poll bound Karnataka has finally on November 16, 2017 got the Anti-Superstition Bill passed unanimously in the ongoing winter session of the Karnataka State Assembly to eradicate evil practices with some minor amendments.

The Anti-Superstition Bill was earlier cleared by the Karnataka Cabinet on September 27, 2017. The Bill has exempted stamping of mudras on the body which is a practice in the
