There is no constitutional provision for reservation of any kind in the council of states or the upper house. However, seats are reserved for SCs & STs in Lok Sabha, Gram Panchayats and Municipalities. Article 330 provides that seats shall be reserved in Lok Sabha for the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes and article 332(1) provides reservation of seats for them in the State Assemblies.
