As we know the Indian constitution follows the federal system and according to it, there is two types of government system;
1) Central government.
2) State government.

Central government:

Parliament of India is the supreme legislative body of the Republic of India. It consists of two houses ie; Rajya Sabha which is called upper house which should have a maximum of 250 members but currently it has 245 members and the second one is Lok Sabha which is called the lower house and it should have a maximum of 552 members but currently, it has 545 members. The Parliament make law according to these two houses and apply to the whole country under the leadership of President of India. Meetings and discussion over laws are conducted between members of these two houses in the parliament headed by the president of India who has every right over.

Let's come to the main topic I,e; Types of elections in India.

Generally, there are three types of elections held namely Lok Sabha Elections, Rajya Sabha elections, and state assembly elections.

1)Lok Sabha elections held after every 5 years and candidates are elected among people directly by the voting system. Among 545 seats in Lok Sabha 2 seats are nominated by the president for Anglo Indian and for rest 543 seats, there is a voting system which is divided for every state in accordance with population and these seats are fixed for each state. A party needs 272 MPs to stake claim to form the Central Government. If a party doesn't have 272 MPs on its own it can ally with other parties and form the government. Candidates who win the Lok Sabha elections are called 'Member of Parliament' and hold their seats for five years or until the body is dissolved by the President on the advice of the council of ministers. A leader of the party/alliance takes oath as the Prime Minister. Coming lokhSabhaa election will be held in April may 2019.
2) Rajya sabha Elections (upper House) : Candidates are not elected directly by the citizens, but by those candidates who have already won the Lok Sabha elections or who were nominated by the President of India at his discretion. Members of the Parliament in Rajya Sabha gets a tenure of six years but one third of the members change every two years. Rajya Sabha acts as a second level review body before a bill becomes an act.

3) State Assembly Elections: Members of State Legislative Assemblies,is elected directly by voting, from a set of candidates who stands in their respective constituencies. Candidates who win the State Legislative Assemblies elections are called 'Member of Legislative Assembly' and hold their seats for five years or until the body is dissolved by the Governor. The house meets in the respective state, on matters relating to the creation of new laws, removing or improving the existing laws that affect all citizens living in that state.
Total strength of each assembly depends on each State, mostly based on size and population. Similar to Lok sabha elections, leader of the majority party/alliance takes oath as Chief Minister of the State.

Currently 13 crores new voter registered for 2019 election according to a data despite of having maximum percentage of voters only 2 out of 3 voted in 2014 election. Being a responsible citixen of the country every one should vote and have the right to vote to elect the best candidate from own region for better tomorrow.
