From Bill To Act Only After Next Census

IndiaTimes Wednesday, 20 September 2023

However, the Census was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, making it unlikely to occur in 2024. The number of Lok Sabha seats and their distribution among states was frozen until 2026, but experts argue for a review of representation based on the population growth.
