Legislature Case Study
Case Study Questions
Read the passage carefully and answer the following questions:
The term ‘Parliament’ refers to the national legislature. The legislature of the States is described as State legislature. The Parliament in India has two houses. When there are two houses of the legislature, it is called a bicameral legislature. The two Houses of the Indian Parliament are the Council of States or the Rajya Sabha and the House of the People or the Lok Sabha. The Constitution has given the States the option of establishing either a unicameral or bicameral legislature. At present only six States have a bicameral legislature. Countries with large size and much diversity usually prefer to have two houses of the national legislature to give representation to all sections in the society and to give representation to all geographical regions or parts of the country. A bicameral legislature has one more advantage. A bicameral legislature makes it possible to have every decision reconsidered. Every decision taken by one house goes to the other house for its decision. This means that every bill and policy would be discussed twice.
(i) Why did India prefer bicameral legislature?
Ans. (a) It is a suitable for countries with larger population, geographical diversity and social diversity.
(b) This system ensures a double check on every matter as any bill cannot become a law until it is passed by both the houses.
(ii) What is the representation system followed for the Upper House in India?
Ans. The representation of people in the Rajya Sabha is based on population that is the state with more population will have more representatives and the one with less population will have less representatives.
(iii) What is the demerit of following symmetrical representation?
Ans. It gives equal representation to all the parts of the country irrespective of their size or population.
