NEW BUILDING OF INDIAN PARLIAMENT

We all witnessed the changes after 2014, when our honourable Prime Minister became this nation’s prime representatives.

His government changes the names of roads, removing Mugal rulers history and adding on our own country’s brave soldiers.

Like these changes, the PM is also changing the old parliament to the new one, with upgraded technical systems and space, which will impact our International relations as well.

OLD BUILDING OF INDIAN PARLIAMENT

The country’s top legislative body is the Indian Parliament. It is a bicameral institution, having two houses: the Lok Sabha (House of the People) and the Rajya Sabha (Council of States).

i)Rajya Sabha: The Rajya Sabha is the Parliament’s upper house. It stands in for India’s states and union territories. According to the proportional representation system, members of State Legislative Assemblies elect the Rajya Sabha.

ii)Lok Sabha: The Lok Sabha is the Parliament’s lower house. It stands in for the Indian populace. Through general elections, eligible Indian voters elect members of the Lok Sabha directly.

History of Parliament of India

After India was freed from British colonial rule, the Indian Parliament was established.
Several years were spent on the Constitution’s drafting, and the makeup of the Parliament were discussed, debated, and deliberated.
The final draught of the Constitution was approved by the Constituent Assembly on November 26, 1949.
It became operative on January 26, 1950.
As a result, by passing the Indian Constitution, the Constituent Assembly created the Indian Parliament.
