Members of Parliament

After coming into force commencement of the Act, the Central Government constitutes a Delimitation Commission. This Delimitation Commission demarcates the boundaries of the Parliamentary Constituencies as per provisions of the Delimitation Act.

There are 543 Parliamentary constituencies in India each electing one member and delimitation Commission demarcates the boundaries of these constituencies. Population of the State is the main basis for allocation of seats to various States in the Lok Sabha. Notwithstanding the above, the Constitution of India was specifically amended in 2002 not to have delimitation of constituencies till the first census after 2026. Thus, the present Constituencies carved out on the basis of 2001 census shall continue to be in operation till the first census after 2026.
