However, the states do not enjoy an equal representation in the Rajya Sabha. The Rajya Sabha has certain special powers which the Lok Sabha does not have. Anatha Sayanam Ayyangar was the Speaker of the Second Lok Sabha 1956-62. Such a resolution empowers the Union Parliament to legislate on such a state subject for a period of one year. Also it is Lok Sabha which grants the money for running the administration of the country. The members of the Lok Sabha are supposed to be in contact with their electorates. The leader of the majority in the Lok Sabha becomes the Prime Minister.
Sumitra Mahajan 5 June 2014 — Present. Financial Powers: In the financial sphere, the Rajya Sabha is a weak House. Such resolutions can be repeatedly passed by the Rajya Sabha. Thus, both the executive and the legislature in India have checks and balances over each other. Similarly electoral function of the Lok Sabha also come to focus, when it sits, in a joint sitting, with the members of the Rajya Sabha, for the election of the Vice-President of India.
He is called the Speaker of the House. Mavalankar, he is supreme in the House. In short, he is the representative of the House itself in its powers, proceedings prestige and dignity. Any member of the House who resigns his office should address his letter of resignation to him. Parliament, from time to time, by law makes provision with respect to all matters relating to, or in connection with, elections to the Lok Sabha, including the preparation of electora … l rolls, the delimitation of constituencies and all other matters necessary for securing the due constitution of the Lok Sabha. Needless to say that this House decides about the taxes which should be levied and those already in force should be reduced or abolished.
This convention ensures that once elected, the Speaker enjoys the respect of all sections of the House. Thus in England once who is a Speaker continues to be so as long as he likes. Electoral Functions: The Lok Sabha also performs some electoral functions. The Speaker also has certain residuary powers under the Rules of Procedure. A non-Money Bill, passed by the Lok Sabha, can be delayed by the Rajya Sabha for a maximum period of six months. The members of Rajya Sabha are chosen through the indirect method by the elected members of the Legislature of States and Union Territories. If the Rajya Sabha fails to pass a money bill and 14 days elapse from the date of the submission of the bill to it, the money bill is deemed to have been passed by both the houses of Parliament.
Permanency The operation of Lok Sabha continues for 5 years, unless dissolved earlier. These are important occasions when she gets to know the mood of various parties on a wide spectrum of issues. Besides speaker there is a deputy speaker usually from opposition party who presides in the absence of speaker. Members of Rajya Sabha are elected by the elected members of State Legislative Assemblies in accordance with the system of proportional representation by means of single transfera … ble vote. Such a resolution empowers the Union Parliament to legislate on such a state subject for a period of one year.
The Upper House cannot change it in form, though it may suggest some changes which may or may not be accepted by the Lok Sabha. However, he continues in office until a new Speaker is elected by the new House. The President nominates two members of the Anglo-Indian Community to the Lok Sabha. The first Lok Sabha was constituted in the year 1952 after the first General Election in the year 1951-1952. The power to remove the Vice-President of India is shared by the Upper House and the Lower House. The Speaker is thus, in every sense, considered the true guardian of the Indian Parliamentary democracy, holding the complete authority of the Lok Sabha.
The power of removing judges or impeacment of President has never been used by the Parliament. Even if the House is dissolved, the Speaker does not vacate his office. In that capacity, members of various Indian Parliamentary Delegations going abroad are nominated by her after consulting the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha. He is also the Ex-Officio Chairman of a few Committees of the House such as the Business Advisory Committee, Rules Committees and General Purposes Committee. The Rajya Sabha has no power over such a motion, and hence no real power over the executive. This would explain why this office still remains one of the most crucial ones in the life of every Lok Sabha. Money Bills can only be introduced in Lok Sabha.
If Parliamentary democracy is to survive and continue with vigour, speakers need to shed complacency. Since the votes of the members of all the state Assemblies for the election of the President have been equated with those of the member of the Parliament therefore, the part of the Lok Sabha in the election process is very important and significant. Further, all comments and speeches made by members of the House are addressed to the speaker. However, the Parliament can extend such period at the time of any emergency. The President normally accepts this recommendation unless otherwise convinced that the Lok Sabha might recommend a new Prime Minister by a majority vote. Qualifications for Membership of the Lok Sabha : 1 He must be a citizen of India. All types of bills can originate in the Lok Sabha and if a bill is moved in and passed by the Rajya Sabha, it has to come to the Lok Sabha for its approval.
