India is the leading Democracy in the World but we believe that due to certain reasons, democratic system is not working correctly. So, now the researchers think that why this biggest Democracy is not working well? There is somethingincorrect in the Electoral process. Now, I have showed the whole happenings in the currentdays’ Electoral workout and also recommended some remedies for the improvement of the Electoral method. This has been in the middle of the most broadly discussed electoral reforms in India. Multi-cornered contests have become a norm in India rather than an exception due to the raise in the number of lesser and regional parties. There have been cases in the state assembly elections where a candidate has been confirmed winner with the triumph margin of less than 100 votes. Apart from this anomaly, in the majority cases, a candidate wins the election by securing just 35-40 per cent of the total number of votes polled. Hence he or she cannot be deemed to be a choice of bulk of the electorate. To overcome this limitation, the first-past-the-post system should be replaced with a two-stage electoral method. In this, a second round of election will be held if not any of the candidates in the fray is able to get 55 per cent of the total number of votes polled in the 1stround. The two candidates who have obtained the highest number of votes in the 1stround will fight in the 2nd round. Whoever between the two gets more than 51 per cent of the sum votes polled in the second round is confirmed the winner. Simultaneous elections for Union and state legislatures: at present 3-4 states in India go for elections every year. This undermines the working of the center government as the regime in command cannot take solid decisions due to the alarm of a backlash in the next round of assembly election. Hence concurrent elections will not only assurance that governments at the centre and the states carry out their accountabilities in a silky manner but also restrainneedless election expenditure. The arrangement of simultaneous elections can be wide-ranging to the elections for the municipal corporations and other local self-government institutions.
