Abstract: This idea of One Nation One Election was earlier placed before the nation by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. One nation one election is a debatable issue that is the reason even Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked for national debate on this issue before execution of such kind of electoral reform. The frequent conduct of elections involves huge expenditure and use of various other resources that is why there should be one nation one election. The present paper deals with the perception of people about the One Nation One Election policy. The result of the study shows a positive wave regarding simultaneous elections in the country. People eagerly want electoral reform and change in present scenario. Majority of respondents accepted that simultaneous elections will bring stability in democracy, will reduce corruption, election and other unnecessary expenses, will strengthen nationalism, speed up development process etc. Simultaneous elections are not disadvantageous for country like India as it is not a new phenomenon for Indians.
