List of Vice-President of India (1947-2016) Till Now


Election :
The Vice-President is elected by members of an electoral college consisting of the numbers of both House of Parliament. A secret ballot is cast in accordance with the system of proportional representation by means of a single transferable vote. However, his election is different from that of the President as the state legislatures have no part in it.

Term of Office : The Vice-President is elected for a term of 5 years and is eligible for immediate re-election. However, his office may be terminated earlier than the field term of 5 years, either by: (i) resignation to be in writing addressed to the President; or (ii) removal–by a resolution  of the Council of States passed by majority of its members and agreed to by the Lok Sabha (Article 67).
