HOW CONSTITUENCIES ARE DEMARCHED?
All constituencies are required to be delimited
having regard to the distribution of population in geographically compact areas,
existing boundaries of administrative units , facilities of communication ,
public convenience and other cognate factors to ensure homogeneity in the
creation of constituencies.
All constituencies for the general seats are, as far
as possible, equal in population.
The Election Commission, which for this purpose is
called the Delimitation Commission, publishes a preliminary list of
constituencies and invites representations thereon.
The Commission after hearing and considering the
representations , if any received by it , makes such amendments , alterations or
modifications in the preliminary list as may be necessary. It then publishes in
the Official Gazette the final report and the list of constituencies.
