Elections that are held in all constituencies at the same time, either on the same day or within a few Days, after a regular interval of five years are called general elections. 

Sometimes elections that are held only for one or a few constituencies to fill the vacancies caused by death or resignation of members, these are called a by-election. 

After a General Election a new government will be formed whereas in a by-election the existing government will not change.
