MLC i.e. Member of the Legislative Council are the members of Vidhan Parishad or Legislative Council which is the upper house of the States of India (Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Jammu and Kashmir, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Telangana, and Uttar Pradesh have Legislative Council)
An MLC is elected for six year and one-third of a Council's members expire every two years similar to Rajya Sabha. He/She must be citizens of India, at least 30 years' old, not an insolvent, and on the voters' list of the state for which he or she is contesting an election.

One-third are elected by members of local bodies such as Municipalities, Gram Sabhas/Gram Panchayats, Panchayat Samitis and Zila Parishads.
One-third are elected by members of Legislative Assemblies of the State from among the persons who are not members of the Assembly.
