There shall be a Parliament for the Union which shall consist of the President and two Houses to be known respectively.
The Parliament of India (Bhartiya Sansad), is the supreme legislative body in India.
The Parliament comprises the President of India and the two Houses — Lok Sabha (House of the People) and Rajya Sabha (Council of States).
The President has the power to summon and prorogue either House of Parliament or to dissolve Lok Sabha. India's government is bicameral;
Rajya Sabha is the upper house and Lok Sabha is the lower house.
Those elected or nominated (by the President) to either house of Parliament are referred to as members of parliament or MPs. The MPs of Lok Sabha are directly elected by the Indian public and the MPs of Rajya Sabha are elected by the members of the State Legislative Assemblies, in accordance with proportional representation. The Parliament is composed of 790 MPs, who serve the largest democratic electorate in the world.
