The idea of aligning and synchronizing the timing of elections across India has garnered much debate over the past few years. Commonly referred to as 'One Nation Election', this proposal envisions structuring the electoral calendar so that elections to Lok Sabha, State Assemblies, and local government bodies occur simultaneously or get clustered together in a predetermined cycle. Critics argue that this electoral reform will result in significant cost savings, improve governance efficiencies, reduce pressure on political parties, check populist measures, and induce a more coherent outlook on national issues. By avoiding frequent election mode, governments can focus on long-term policymaking rather than short-term electoral considerations. Currently, state and central governments are in perpetual campaign mode which hinders effective administration. This paper discusses impact of One Nation One Election on the economic stability, society and the government of India in an elaborative manner.
