Patna Sahib (Lok Sabha constituency) is one of the 543 parliamentary constituencies in India. The constituency is located in Patna district in Bihar. Until 2008, there was only one Lok Sabha seat for Patna, capital of Bihar. In the reorganization effected that year, the city was awarded two seats, named Pataliputra (after the city's ancient name) and Patna Sahib. The Voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) system with EVMs was used for the first time in this Lok Sabha constituency in 2014 elections.[1] [2]
