The lower house of the Indian Parliament is called the Lok Sabha (House of People). The Lok Sabha is authorized to enact laws on matters which are a part of the Union and the Concurrent list. Additionally, unlike Rajya Sabha which can not enact money bills, Lok Sabha has the power to introduce and approve both, money and non-money bills. It is responsible for giving approval to proposals on budgets and taxation. Lok Sabha establishes committees and commissions to perform and oversee certain tasks and considers their reports for decision making.
The Constitution of India mandates that the Lok Sabha can have a maximum strength of 552 members. Its members are elected by people through an election and represent the constituency they won the election from. They serve for a term of 5 years or till the house is dissolved by the President with the advice of the Council of Ministers.
