In Indian states which have a bicameral legislature, the Vidhan Parishad (State Legislative Council) serves as the upper house. The Indian Constitution provides limited powers to the Legislative Council. It can neither create nor dissolve a state government. The Legislative Council also plays no role in passing Finance Bills.
A state's Legislative Council comprises one-third or less than one-third of the members of the state Legislative Assembly. Additionally, it's size can also not be less than 40 members. The election of the Chairman of Legislative Council and the Deputy Chairman is done through the members of the council.
