Abstract and Keywords This chapter examines how the exercise of legislative privileges is treated in the Indian Constitution. More specifically, it considers whether the exercise of legislative privileges by members of the Indian Parliament is justiciable and if so, to what extent.

  The breach of privilege laws violates the basic fair trial guarantees. What is the procedure in privilege cases? All state legislatures have privilege committees comprising 10 to 12 legislators as members and a senior politician from the ruling party as its head. The legislators can forward their complaints to the committee. While the Constitution accords special privileges and powers to parliamentarians and legislators to maintain the dignity and authority of Parliament and the legislatures, these powers and privileges are not codified. There are no clearly laid out rules on what constitutes breach of privilege and what punishment it entails.   Legislative Privilege in its wider interpretation refers to the right of the member of a legislature to speak freely in the House, without fear of being sued for slander. This privilege protects any statement made in a legislature an MLA or any paper published on this count as part of legislative business. In Meghalaya, MLAs seem to have taken this privilege to a new level. Legislative privilege is held by individual legislators; thus, it cannot be waived or asserted by anyone but the legislator who holds itThe Governor, Secretary of State, or State of Texas cannot waive or assert legislative privilege on a legislator’s behalfIf two legislators draft a bill and one waives his or her legislative privilege regarding the bill’s development, the other legislator retains the right to assert legislative privilege .

These sections protect the freedom of speech of parliamentarians and legislators, insulate them against litigation over matters that occur in these houses, and give powers to define the powers, privileges and immunities of a house, its members and committees. The Privileges is a book with an interesting premise and interesting characters. The book bills itself as a intimate look into the rise of a financial tycoon and his family at the beginning of the 21st century and their moral and emotional quandaries. Jonathan Dee is a gifted writer. He situates the characters in a rarefied social milieu with /5(). Forty-three state constitutions contain a provision, analogous to the U.S. Constitution's Speech or Debate Clause (Article I, Section 6, Clause 1), granting state legislators a legal privilege in connection with their legislative work.
