If Tamil Nadu has unfairly paid the price for controlling population growth by having its Lok Sabha seats reduced by two, is there a way to compensate for that? The Madras High Court has come out with a formula that pegs monetary compensation to the state at Rs 5,600 crore. Till 1962, Tamil Nadu had 41 Lok Sabha members.
