The maximum size or number of seats of the parliament by the Constitution is 552, which is made up by election of up to 530 members to represent the States, up to 20 members to represent the Union Territories and not more than two members of the Anglo-Indian Community to be nominated by the Honorable President of India (if no Anglo Indian member won the election).  The seat allocation to the different states and UTs is done on the basis of population of the state/UT. The number of Members of Parliament will be reviewed in the 2026.
