Registered Unrecognised Political Parties – UPSC Prelims

If a party satisfies any one of below-mentioned criteria, then they are called Registered Unrecognised Political Parties. The conditions are
  • If the political party is newly registered
  • If the political parties not secured enough percentage of votes in Assembly or General Elections to become a State party
  • Political Parties that never contested in elections since they got registered with the Election Commission.
These parties don’t enjoy all the benefits extended to the recognised parties such as reserving a separate symbol for the party, subsidized land for party office etc.
