Venukumar said: (Apr 4, 2014)  
What are the 6 states which have mlc seats?

Vidyut said: (May 26, 2014)  
The Vidhan Parishad (or Legislative Council) is the upper house in those states of India that have a bicameral legislature. As of 2011, Seven (out of twenty-nine) states have a Legislative Council: Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Jammu and Kashmir, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Assam. Union Cabinet has cleared the State of Assam to form a Legislative Council in December 2013. In 2010 the Parliament of India passed an Act to re-establish a Legislative Council for an eighth state, Tamil Nadu, but implementation of the Act has been put on hold pending legal action; the state government has also expressed its opposition to the council's revival.

Jothi said: (Jun 9, 2014)  
Assam has not legislative council. Only 6 states having MLC.

Rahul said: (Jul 26, 2014)  
Now Telangana also has bicameral legislature. So total 7 states now.

Subbu said: (Oct 20, 2014)  
So, the final list of states having Councils is as follows:

1) Andhra Pradesh

3) Bihar
4) Jammu and Kashmir
5) Uttar Pradesh
6) Maharashtra
7) Karnataka

The Rajya Sabha seat quota for each state is fixed as per Schedule 4 of the constitution.

The representatives of the States and of the Union Territories in the Rajya Sabha are elected by the method of indirect election.

The representatives of each State and two Union territories are elected by the elected members of the Legislative Assembly of that State and by the members of the Electoral College for that Union Territory, as the case may be, in accordance with the system of proportional representation by means of the single transferable vote.
