  • @resilience.. Good sir, President has no discretion in matters of dissolution of Loksabha. He can dissolve it only when the CoM recommends it.
    On the other hand, President has discretion in dismissing the CoM if he feels they have lost the majority in the Loksabha or if the Loksabha passes a NCM. He also has discretion in appointing the PM if no party has received a clear majority after elections.
    Correct me if I am wrong. :)

    yes i lost d challnge n its gud to lose den to b ignorant.thnx t.c. :)

    King bhai when CoM looses the majority in the lok sabha, President can use his discretion(CoM recommendation is not required here) either to dissolve or to appoint any other PM, by giving him time to prove the majority on the floor.
    Correct me if I am wrong. :)

    yes, if an amendment is passed to motion of thanks in Lok sabha it would amount to no-confidence in the government and concerned govt will have to resign. However, similar case in Rajya sabha amounts to government's inability to have consensus with the opposition.
