The election process is the main identity of any democratic country, it gives a vibrant form to democracy and also ensures its participation in the progress of the country. Our country India is such a democratic country, in which the process of elections goes on almost every year, in which elections are held every time at some place and development works are hampered due to the code of conduct. One Nation One Election is a measure that can save India from being on election mode throughout the year. It can provide a new structure to the Indian election process. Through this process, there is a concept to hold the elections to the Lok Sabha and the Legislative Assemblies simultaneously. In 1999, the Law Commission, in its 170th report, favored simultaneous elections to the Lok Sabha and assemblies. After this, in December 2015, the Law Commission presented a report on the topic 'One Nation, One Election'. It was told that if elections to Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha are held simultaneously in the country, then crores of rupees can be saved. Keeping these things in mind, it was recommended that simultaneous elections should be held in the country. Through this paper, the author analysis the concept of One Nation One Election in India.
