The State Government:

The State Legislature:- The legislature of the states are of two types. Only 5 states have bicameral legislatures having two houses. (Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Karnataka, Jammu & Kashmir, Maharashtra). Others are Unicameral, and have one house. The two houses are known as the Legislative Council or the Vidhan Parishad.
1. The Legislative Assembly or Vidhan Sabha (The Lower House):-
