What is the strength of Vidhan Parishad?

The maximum strength of the legislative council is fixed at one-third of the total strength of the assembly, and the minimum strength is fixed at 40. It means that the size of the council depends on the size of the assembly of the concerned state. This is done to ensure the predominance of the directly elected House (assembly) in the legislative affairs of the state. Though the Constitution has fixed the maximum and minimum limits, the actual strength of a council is fixed by Parliament.
