Friday - October 12, 2018 3:39 pm , Category : WTN SPECIAL

The Legislative Council is a permanent house like the Rajya Sabha

OCT 12 (WTN) - Just like the Rajya Sabha is the Upper House in the Parliament and the Lok Sabha is the lower house, in the same way the Legislative Council is called the Upper House and the Legislative Assembly is called Lower House. There are seven states in the country which has its legislative council; said states are Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Jammu and Kashmir, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Telangana and Uttar Pradesh. Formation of legislative council has been proved by the Parliament in Rajasthan and Assam.

There is a provision for Legislative Council in Article 169, 71 (1) and 171 (2) of the Indian Constitution. For its constitution, the proposal passed by a two-thirds majority of the members present in the Legislative Assembly of the concerned state is sent to the Federal Parliament. After this, according to Article 171 (2), the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha pass the resolution with the general majority which is sent for the signature of the President. Once the President sign, the constitution of the Legislative Council is approved.

Like the Rajya Sabha, the tenure of the members of the Legislative Council is six years, but after every two years the term of one-third member’s ends. Like the Rajya Sabha, the Legislative Council is also a permanent house which can never be dissolved.

The number of members of the Legislative Council of any state should not be more than one-third of the total number of members in the Legislative Assembly of that state and for any reason it must be at least 40 members. But in the Legislative Council of Jammu and Kashmir, 36 members have been arranged by Article 50 of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir.

About one-third of the members of the Legislative Council are elected by the members of the Legislative Assembly from such persons who are not members of it. On the other hand, one-third of the members are elected by elected, in which members of the municipalities, district boards and members of other authority in the state are involved.

At the same time, one by twelve member is elected by individuals who have been teaching in educational institutions (not below secondary schools) within the state for at least three years. Another one by twelve (1/12) is selected by registered graduates who have completed their studies more than three years ago. The remaining members are appointed by the Governor related to the fields of literature, science, art, cooperative movement and social service.

To become a member of the Legislative Council, anyone must be a citizen of India. He must be at least 30 years old. Must not be mentally incapable and bankrupt In addition, his name should be in the voter list of the area from where he/she is contesting. At that time he should not be a member of parliament.
