Author(s): Piyush Goyal, Aditya Awasthi
Abstract: The primary objective of this research is to introduce law and practice of election so as to discuss issues selectively for specific suggestions after arriving at rational conclusions. The conclusions may summarize issues discussed but they may not become suggestions, but they play important role in selecting important issues so that system of elections can be improved. Free, fair, fearless and impartial elections are the guarantee of a democratic polity. Effective mechanism is the basic requirement for having such election. For conducting, holding and completing the democratic process, a potential law based upon requirements of the society tested on the touchstone of the experience of times is concededly of paramount importance. The purpose of all the provisions mentioned in Article-325 is to integrate the minorities into one mainstream of national life and thus keep check on the diverse forces which may be released by the existence of several minority groups. That is why the system of separate electorates was not adopted and elections to all legislatures are held on the basis of joint electorates.
