India is a democratic country. The Lok Sabha is the house of the people. Therefore the people of India (those who are eligible) directly elect the members of the lok sabha. 
First the election commission sets up constituencies in each state. From each constituency members of different parties will be contesting the elections. 
After the votes are counted the candidate with a simple majority gets elected. 

Consider the following example: 
Total votes in constituency=2000 
Votes attained by candidate A=800 
Votes attained by candidate B=500 
Votes attained by candidate C=400 
Invalid votes =300 
So, candidate A has secured maximum votes. Hence candidate A is elected.
