Abhishek Chauhan,

Earlier there were 7 states including TN & AP but then legislature of these two states abolished legislative councils. Bt again parliament has passed the legislative act in AP in 2005 and in 2007 leg. Council has been set up in AP. So total 6 states are there now. And in TN also parliament has passed the same act in 2010 so in coming days it will also have bicameral legislature. And Tn will be 7th state with bicameral legislature.
