THE TWO HOUSES ARE LOKSABHA AND RAJYASABHA
Rajya Sabha is called the Upper House but that does not mean that it is more powerful than Lok Sabha. Our constitution does not give Rajya Sabha same special powers over the states.But on most matters the Lok Sabha exercises supreme power.
(i) Any ordinary law needs to be passed by both Houses. The final decision is taken in a jointsession but as number of Lok Sabha members is greater, the view of the Lok Sabha prevails.
(ii) Lok Sabha exercises more power in money matters. Once the Lok Sabha passes the budgetthe Rajya Sabha cannot reject it. It can hold it only for 14 days.
(iii) Lok Sabha controls the council of ministers. A person who enjoys the support of the majority members in the Lok Sabha is appointed the Prime Minister.
(iv) If majority members of the Lok Sabha say they have no confidence in the council of ministers all ministers including the Prime Minister have to quit.
