State the Conditions as Laid Down by the Election Commission to Recognize a ‘State Party’ and ‘National Party’.

The difference between a state and a national party can be identified as follows:

  • In a state party, the party members aim to highlight the regional interests. On the other hand, a national party gives due importance to national interests.
  • A state party can contest in elections only in a particular state, whereas a national party can contest in elections all across the country.

Example: BJP and Congress are national parties, whereas Akali Dal and Trinamool Congress are state level parties.
