The first General Elections of India held in 1951-52.

As per Wikipedia ” The Indian general election of 1951–52 elected the first Lok Sabha since India became independent in August 1947.Until this point, the Indian Constituent Assembly had served as an interim legislature. See the ‘Durations’ section below to find the time-range associated with these elections.

The Indian National Congress (INC) won a landslide victory, winning 364 of the 489 seats and 45% of the total votes polled. This was over four times as many votes as the second-largest party. Jawaharlal Nehru became the first democratically elected Prime Minister of the country. In the first Lok Sabha polls held in 1951, India had around 173 million voters, out of an overall population of about 360 million.Voter turnout was 45.7%.”
