All 543 seats in the Lok Sabha
272 seats needed for a majority
The next Indian general election is expected to be held in or before May 2024 to elect the members of 18th Lok Sabha.
The tenure of Lok Sabha is scheduled to end on 16 June 2024. The previous general elections were held in April–May 2019. After the election, National Democratic Alliance, led by Bharatiya Janata Party, formed the union government, with Narendra Modi becoming Prime Minister.
All 543 elected MPs are elected from single-member constituencies using first-past-the-post voting. The 104th amendment to the constitution effectively abolished the two seats that were reserved for the Anglo-Indian community.
Eligible voters must be Indian citizens, 18 years or older, an ordinary resident of the polling area of the constituency and registered to vote (name included in the electoral rolls), possess a valid voter identification card issued by the Election Commission of India or equivalent. Some people convicted of electoral or other offences are barred from voting.
Article 83 of the Constitution of India requires elections to the Lok Sabha be held once every five years.
