State Legislature * The state legislature occupies a pre- eminent and central position in thee political system of a state. . Articles 168 to 212 in Part VI of the Constitution deal with the organisation, composition, duration, officers, procedures, privileges, powers and so on of the state legislature.

These are Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka and Jammu and Kashmir

The legislative council (Vidhan Parishad) is the upper house (second chamber or house of elders), while the legislative assembly (Vidhan Sabha) is the lower house (first chamber or popular house) * The Constitution provides for the abolition or creation of legislative councils in states. * Accordingly, the Parliament can abolish a legislative council (where it already exists) or create it (where it does not exist), if the egislative assembly of the concerned state passes a resolution to that effect. * Such a specific resolution must be passed by the state assembly by a special majority.
* The idea of having a second chamber in the states was criticised in the Constituent Assembly on the ground that it was not representative of the people, that it delayed legislative process and that it was an expensive institution.
