From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Imperial Legislative Council was a legislature for India during the middle years of the British Raj.

The Government of India Act 1909 increased the number of members of the Legislative Council to sixty, of which twenty-seven were to be elected. For the first time, Indians were admitted to membership, and there were six Muslim representatives, the first time that such representation had been given to a religious group.

By the Government of India Act 1919, the Imperial Legislative Council was converted into a new Imperial or Central Legislative Assembly which became the lower house of a bicameral parliament, with a new Council of State as an upper house, reviewing legislation passed by the Assembly.
