How many members legislative council can have?

Today, I will explain how many members legislative council(Vidhan Parishad) of a state in India can have.

~ It has not more than one third of the total number of MLAs in the state.

~ Not Less than 40.

However, Legislative Council of Jammu and Kashmir has 36 members vide Section 50 of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir.
