NOTE: To stop defection and the politics of ‘Aaya Ram, Gaya Ram’. It is popularly known as Anti- Defection Law. Ninety-First Amendment Act, 2003 The provision of the Tenth Schedule (anti-defection law) pertaining to exemption from disqualification in case of split by one-third members of legislature party was deleted.
