As per the new standards of the Election Commission, a political gathering needs to either win 2% seats in the Lok Sabha from no less than three unique states in the most recent general decision or it needs to win 6% of the aggregate legitimate votes in no less than four states in a Lok Sabha or Assembly race, notwithstanding winning four Lok Sabha seats. It can likewise be given a national gathering status on the off chance that it hosts been perceived as a state get-together in no less than four states. Also, the Election Commission has chosen to survey the status of political gatherings like clockwork rather than the five starting now and into the foreseeable future.
Aside from West Bengal, where the TMC has shaped the administration twice, the gathering has nearness in Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Tripura. In the event that TMC is honored the status, it will be the seventh national gathering in India after the Bharatiya Janata Party, the Indian National Congress, the Bahujan Samaj Party, the Nationalist Congress Party, the Communist Party of India and the Communist Party of India (Marxist).
