    Indian Parliamentary System is system of democratic governance in which executive branch derives its democratic legitimacy form and is held accountable to legislature ,also executive and legislative branch are inter- connected. Disruptions are gradually rising in parliament and has affected its functioning which of most important for developmental process. The ‘temple of democracy’ is unable to fulfill expectations of citizens.
    1) Lack of knowledge on the subject
    2) Want of media coverage for publicity
    3) Inefficient leadership
    4) Poor floor management.
    5) It is considered a profession rather than responsibility.
    As our representatives are deviating from their duties, it is time for Indian society to claim their right and authority from political parties that they realize their responsibility and the purpose of being elected. This can be done by –
    1) The speaker has to eject and suspend the members who disrupt proceeding as mentioned the rules book.
    2) The debates should be productive and should not involve unethical means.
    3) Use of technology and methods to educate the members on the issues to be covered in the session on prior basis like session by experts, complete analysis on the policy (both pros and cons )etc.
    The members should remember that collective work rewards but not the disruptions and they are representatives of the people and are there to work for the welfare of the people and growth of the country.
