Let us tell you that the public does not vote directly in the local body MLC elections. Instead, the village head, BDC members, district panchayat members and councilors of municipal bodies vote for it.

Tenure of MLC is 6 years

Like the Rajya Sabha members, the term of an MLC is also of 6 years. These are called the upper house of the states and the assembly is called the lower house. After the bill is passed from the assembly, it goes to the Legislative Council where each issue is discussed in depth. Only after being passed from there, they are sent to the governor for final approval.
