POK, Azad Kashmir and Kashmir all are different.

In International law, what is important is De Facto status and not De Jure status. Does Azad Kashmir have accredited diplomats to other countries and passports accepted by any country? Yes POK and Azad Kashmir are different but AK is still part of POK --- Skapur 19:58, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Rajya Sabha[edit] Main article: Rajya Sabha The Rajya Sabha is also known as "Council of States" or the upper house. Rajya Sabha is a permanent body and is not subject to dissolution. However, one third of the members retire every second year, and are replaced by newly elected members. Each member is elected for a term of six years.[8] Its members are indirectly elected by members of legislative bodies of the States. The Rajya Sabha can have a maximum of 250 members in all. Elections to it are scheduled and the chamber cannot be dissolved. Each member has a term of 6 years and elections are held for one-third of the seats after every 2 years. 238 members are to be elected from States and Union Territories and 12 are to be nominated by President of India and shall consist of persons having special knowledge or practical experience in respect of such matters as the following, namely literature, science, art and social service. The minimum age for a person to become a member of Rajya Sabha is 30 years. Representatives of States are elected by the elected members of the Legislative Assembly of the State in accordance with system of proportional representation by means of single transferable vote. Representatives of Union Territories are indirectly elected by members of an electoral college for that territory in accordance with system of proportional representation. The Council of States is designed to maintain the federal character of the country. The number of members from a state depends on the population of the state (e.g. 31 from Uttar Pradesh and one from Nagaland).

= The opening paragraph states that the Parliament of India is "located at Mew Delhi". Now technically speaking, this is incorrect. The parliament is a body and is not located anywhere. It is the Sansad Bhavan which is located in New Delhi. Consider correcting this. --Mihirmodi (talk) 10:37, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Merge Lawmaking procedure in India with Parliament of India[edit]

I propose that it would be apt to merge Lawmaking procedure in India with Parliament of India. It will make the Parliament of India article more interesting and it will allow the reader to know about the functioning of the parliament at one place. It may enable this article achieve a good article status in the near future. Kindly put forward your comment for and against the proposed merger.-- R.Sivanesh © 20:22, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Disagree. Lawmaking is done at state level too, plus some subjects are concurrent while others are clearly only for states to legislate upon. Parliament is not the sole stakeholder in the creation of laws in India. AshLin (talk) 21:41, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
Strong disagree, Parliament is only part of the process even in the central lawmaking procedure. Pretty much everything has to go through Cabinet committees before being tabled in Parliament. That's a reason to improve the other article, not merge it here. —SpacemanSpiff 21:48, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
Add a "lawmaking" section here and link it to the other article using the main temple. That should solve the problem of presenting the "lawmaking in parliament" part to the reader.--Sodabottle (talk) 12:18, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
I have better idea: merge that article into Politics of India: India has a President, Prime Minister, and Supreme Court, not just a legislature.--RM (Be my friend) 02:24, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
I withdraw the proposal to merge.-- R.Sivanesh © 04:05, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Cleanup regarding the parliament building and the parliament.[edit]

The difference between the parliament building(Sansad bhavan) and Parliament are not being brought out clearly. The history section speaks about the history of the building rather than the history of the parliament. Further even recently a user has added the central hall as a component of the parliament. Infact the central is a part of the parliament building and not the parliament. So I suggest that we either move the contents related to the parliament building into a new section or create a new article for the parliament building. Kindly pour in your suggestions.- R.Sivanesh © 05:44, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

the largest trans-national democratic electorate in the world[edit]

Since when is de Indian Parliament transnational? I think that it is wrong--Mahetin (talk) 13:33, 22 February 2012 (UTC)


Pranab mukherjee is the current President of INDIA and not A member of congress party OR THE LEADER OF HOUSE.kindly edit. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ROCKY2020 (talkcontribs) 10:40, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Infobox contradiction[edit]

It gives both 500 and 545 as the number of representatives in the lower house. -- Beland (talk) 16:11, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Indian Parliament Structure[edit]

This article contains a graph showing the political composition of the Indian parliament by seat via the respective colors of each political party.

Could (more knowledgeable than I) someone please offer a key which associates each color with each political party (e.g. orange=BJP) ? For English-speakers who are not so familiar with Indian politics and who come to this article in order to learn more, this crutch could be quite helpful. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:12, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
