Indian Lok Sabha Seats

The bottom house of India’s bicameral Parliament, the Lok Sabha, sometimes referred to as the House of the People, is made up of the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha. To represent their individual districts, members of the Lok Sabha are chosen by adult universal suffrage and first-past-the-post voting. They are appointed by the Council of Ministers for a term of five years, or until the President dissolves the body. The Lok Sabha Chambers at the Sansad Bhavan in New Delhi are where the chamber meets. The House’s membership was previously limited to 500 individuals by the Indian Constitution, but that number was eventually raised to 550. In India, there are 543 Lok Sabha seats that can be filled by a maximum of 543 MPs.
