    Which state sends the maximum representatives to the Lok Sabha?

    A)  Himachal Pradesh

    B)  Madhya Pradesh

    C)  West Bengal

    D)  Uttar Pradesh

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] Population is the basis of allocation of seats of the Lok Sabha. As far as possible, every State gets representation in the Lok Sabha in proportion to its population as per 2001 census figures. After every census, the Central Govt. constitutes a Delimitation Commission. This Delimitation Commission demarcates the boundaries of the Parliamentary Constituencies as per provisions of the Delimitation Act. The present delimitation of constituencies has been done on the basis of 2001 census figures under the provisions of Delimitation Act, 2002. The Constitution of India was specifically amended in 2002 (84th amendment) not to have delimitation of constituencies till the first census after 2026. Thus, the present Constituencies carved out on the basis of 2001 census shall continue to be in operation till the first census after 2026.
