List of National and Regional Political Parties in India


List of National and Regional Political Parties in India: 
             This listing is according to the Indian general election, 2014 and Legislative Assembly elections and any party aspiring to state or national party status must fulfil at least one of the concerned criteria. In addition, national and state parties have to fulfill these conditions for all subsequent Lok Sabha or State elections, or else they lose their status. As per latest publication from Election Commission(13th Dec 2016 and 5 May 2017), the total number of parties registered was 1841, with 7 national, 49 state and 1785 unrecognized parties

In India, only 6 parties were recognized as national parties by 2016, but this number has now become 7 due to the recognition of Mamta Banerjee's party 'All India Trinamool Congress' as a national party in 2016.
