Correct Answer - Option 2 : 1971

The correct answer is 1971.

 

  • The committee noted that the first general election to the Lok Sabha and all State Legislative Assemblies were held simultaneously in 1951-52.
  • The practice continued in three subsequent General Elections held in the years 1957, 1962, and 1967.
  • This cycle got disrupted with the dissolution of some Legislative Assemblies in 1968 and 1969. In 1970, the Lok Sabha was itself dissolved prematurely and fresh elections were held in 1971.
  • The committee said it is of the view that the idea of 'One Nation, One Election' or simultaneous elections is not new to the country as the first three Lok Sabha elections in 1952, 1957, and 1962 were held simultaneously only and it can be brought into the mainstream with suitable amendments to the Constitution.
