Compare the legislative and financial powers of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. On the basis of your comparison, which one of the two Houses is more powerful and how?


Comparison of Legislative power:

Money bills originates only in Lok Sabha. Rajya Sabha can delay the money bill for fourteen days but cannot reject the passage of a money bill.

Comparison of Financial Powers:

The annual budget is presented in the Lok Sabha. The annual budget can be discussed in Rajya Sabha but it is presented only in Lok Sabha.

On the basis of my comparison, Lok Sabha is more powerful than the Rajya Sabha in almost all matters. Even in those matters in which the Constitution has placed both Houses on an equal footing, the Lok Sabha has more influence due to its greater numerical strength.
