Legislative Assembly (Vidhan Sabha)
The Vidhan Sabha (State Legislative Assembly) refers to the lower house of the State Legislature. Members of the assembly are elected directly by the people through the state election. Following Legislative Assembly elections in a state, the state's Governor invites the party with a majority of seats to form the government.
A state Legislative Council can be established or abolish by the State Legislative Council through passing a resolution. To come into effect, such a resolution has to be supported by a majority of two-thirds or more members of the Legislative Assembly who are present and voting.
The Legislative Assembly consists of a maximum of 500 and a minimum of 60 members. An individual must be at least 25 years of age to get membership in the Legislative Assembly. Only the State Legislative Assembly can introduce a motion of no confidence against the ruling government in the state. If such a motion is passed by a majority vote, then the Chief Minister and their Council of Ministers have to collectively resign. One term of the assembly spans 5 years unless it is dissolved sooner.
