Although a parliamentary democracy, Indian politics has increasing become dynastic, possibly due to the absence of a party organization, independent civil society associations that mobilize support for the party, and centralized financing of elections. The dynastic phenomenon is seen from national level down to district level. One example of dynastic politics has been the Nehru–Gandhi family which produced three Indian prime ministers. Family members have also led the Congress party for most of the period since 1978 when Indira Gandhi floated the then Congress(I) faction of the party. The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party also features several senior leaders who are dynasts.However, the phenomenon of dynastism is at much lower level in the BJP than the Congress party. Dynastic politics is prevalent also in a number of political parties with regional presence.Among the regional parties, the NCP has particularly high level of dynasticism.
