Delimitation UPSC NOTE


Impact of delimitation

  • Realising the anomaly that a delimitation based on Census data would cause, a delimitation freeze was put in position by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi through the 42nd Amendment of the Constitution in 1976. 

  • This was extended by Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee through the 84th Amendment.

  • States that take little interest in population control could end up with a greater number of seats in Parliament. 

  • The southern states that promoted family planning faced the possibility of having their seats reduced.

Way forward

  • Go in for another freeze, this time not for any specific period but for until all States have achieved population stabilisation.

  • Request to demographic and statistical experts to devise a mathematical model along the lines of the ‘Cambridge Compromise’. 

  • It was based on a mathematically equitable “formula” for the apportionment of the seats of the European Parliament between the member-states. 

  • That formula cannot be applied to our situation as such but needs to be studied so as to customise it for our needs.
