The election process is the fundamental characteristic of any democratic society; it gives democracy a tangible form and ensures the participation of citizens in the development of the nation. Because our nation, India, is such a democratic culture, elections are held practically every year, polling places are chosen at random, and progress toward development is slowed down by the code of conduct. A strategy known as "One Nation, One Electoral" has the potential to stop India from being in an election state during the whole year. It has the ability to provide a new framework for the election process that is being used in India. The elections for the Legislative Assemblies and the Lok Sabha are now scheduled to take place concurrently according to this strategy. In 1999, in its 170th report, the Law Commission argued in favour of holding elections for the Lok Sabha and the assembly at the same time. After that, in December of 2015, the Law Commission issued a report with the title "One Nation, One Election." It has been reported that the government may save millions of rupees in election costs if the elections for the Lok Sabha and the Vidhan Sabha were to be held at the same time. It was proposed that the country hold elections at the same time all around the country in light of the aforementioned factors. In this paper, the author investigates the concept of "One Nation, One Election" as it pertains to India.
