After India's first election campaign on April 17, 1952, the First Lok Sabha was formed. After fulfilling its whole five-year term, the 1st Lok Sabha was disbanded on April 4, 1957. On May 13, 1952, the Lok Sabha convened for the first time. There were 489 Lok Sabha seats available, with 17.3 million people eligible to vote.

The Lok Sabha, or House of People, is India's legislature Parliament's lower chamber, while the Rajya Sabha is the house of representatives. Members of the Lok Sabha are elected by mature democratic elections and a first-past-the-post method to govern their regions, and they operate for 5 years or until the President dissolves the body on the recommendation of the council of ministers. The parliament gathers in the Sansad Bhavan's Lok Sabha Chambers in Delhi.

The Indian Constitution stipulates that the House of Commons has a total of 550 members (Initially, in 1950, it was 500). There are now 543 seats in the House of Representatives, which are managed by choosing up to 543 people at a time. The President selected two additional Anglo-Indians on the suggestion of the Government of India between 1952 and 2020, a practice that was discontinued in January 2020 by the 104th Constitutional Amendment Act, 2019. The Lok Sabha has a strength of 550 people.
