INTRODUCTION

 

Tripura Legislative Assembly

Tripura  was a Princely State till 14 October 1949. A Regency Council was formed in the State for a short period before Independence which was dissolved with the signing of an Agreement of merger of Tripura with the Indian Union in September 1949. It became a Part `C’ State in October 1949. As a result of the reorganisation of States, effected in November 1956, Tripura became a Union Territory with an Advisory Committee to advise the Chief Commissioner. A Territorial Council was formed on 15 August 1957 with 30 members to be elected on the basis of adult franchise and two to be nominated by the Government of India. On 1 July 1963, the Tripura Territorial Council was dissolved after forming a Council of Ministers and a Legislative Assembly with the existing members of the Territorial Council.

On 21 January 1972, Tripura became a full-fledged State through an Act of Parliament titled as the North Eastern Areas (Reorganisation) Act, 1971. The State Legislature is a unicameral body with a Legislative Assembly consisting of 60 members. The tenure of the Assembly is five years unless sooner dissolved. The present House is the Tenth Legislative Assembly.

Normally the Assembly holds three Sessions in a year.
