The makers of our Constitution while establishing Rajya Sabha as second chamber of our Parliament had envisaged a distinct role for it in our parliamentary system. The Rajya Sabha was meant to provide a second look at the legislation passed by the other House as also to prevent hasty legislation and not to ‘prove a clog either to legislation or administration’. Besides, it aimed at providing opportunity to the seasoned and eminent persons who have distinguished themselves in diverse fields such as literature, science, art and social service to serve the country. It was designed to give representation to the States in the apex democratic decision making. Members of Rajya Sabha were expected to be more experienced and learned and less influenced by the ebb and flow of popular opinion. As House of Elders, it was expected to hold dignified and quality debates on issues of public importance and legislative proposals and to ensure the accountability of the executive to Parliament.
