Duration of Legislative Council | Indian Constitution Download PDF
The Legislative Council shall not be subject to dissolution. But one-third of its members shall retire on the expiry of every second year [Art. 172(2)]. It will thus be a permanent body like the Council of States, only a fraction of its membership being changed every third year.
A Legislative Assembly shall have its Speaker and Deputy Speaker, and a Legislative Council shall have its Chairman and Deputy Chairman, and the provisions relating to them are analogous to those relating to the corresponding officers of the Union Parliament.
