1. Number of members in RAJYA SABHA (or Council of States) Upper house of the Parliament of India = 245

Membership is limited to 250 members, 12 of whom are nominated by the President of India for their contributions to art, literature, science, and social services. The remainder of the body is elected by the state and territorial legislatures. Members sit for six-year terms, with one third of the members retiring every two years.

2. Number of members in LOK SABHA (or House of the People)  Lower house of the Parliament of India = 552

Each Lok Sabha is formed for a five-year term, after which it is automatically dissolved, unless
extended by a proclamation of emergency. In such cases, the term may be extended by one-year
increments.

Lok Sabha is composed of representatives of the people chosen by direct election on the basis of the adult suffrage. The maximum strength of the House envisaged by the Constitution is 552, which is made up by election of upto 530 members to represent the States, upto 20 members to represent the Union Territories.

 Two hundred and fifty (250), of which 238 are to be elected and 12 are to be nominated by the President of India in a Rajya Sabha
