The term ‘Delimitation’ which was in news recently, is associated with which process?
Fixing limits of Income tax
Fixing limits of Affordable housing
Fixing limits of Chairperson’s salary
Fixing limits of territorial constituencies

Correct Answer :   Fixing limits of territorial constituencies

Delimitation literally means the process of fixing limits of territorial constituencies in a country with a legislative body.
The government recently cancelled its earlier notifications which postponed delimitation in Assam, Nagaland, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh due to security issues. The exercise to re-adjust the division of each state into territorial constituencies for the purpose of Lok Sabha and state assembly elections on the basis of 2001 census figures, is to be carried out in the four states.
