This list is not even near to current standards. It has a two/three line lead, which doesn't explain conditions for recognition as a national or state party. Tables don't follow WP:ACCESS requirements. Not sure what "Year" signifies? Whether it's a year of establishment of a party or a year in which it was recognised by the Election Commission of India? Data of acronyms and party leaders are unreferenced, same goes with ambiguous "[y]ear". "Symbol" column is almost empty. References are not properly formatted. — Bill william comptonTalk 07:50, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Comment: All images missing now were deleted on Commons post this deletion request. The older versions of the list, (Aug 2005 and Sept 2009) had considerably long lead and explained that "year" is year of formation of party. Someone must have messed up with it post those FLC reviews. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 05:49, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Delist in its current form, it's FAR from Wikipedia's finest work. The Rambling Man (talk) 18:28, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
  • I've restored the lede to an earlier version. Tables and key have been fixed up. Vensatry (Ping me) 07:16, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Delist needs some major work to be up to FL quality. There is no indication to the popularity of each party (how many seats have they won, and where, and when), mention that parties have symbols, but don't show the symbols, source is 4 years out of date...
