Expert Answer:

Dear Chaitanya,

Defection is changing party allegiance from the political party from which a person got elected to a different party. In order to bring down the number of defection cases, the Constitution of India has been amended. Now, according to the law, if an MP or MLA changes parties, he or she will lose the seat in the legislature.
