There are several types of elections. Through direct elections, representatives are directly elected by the general public to the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. The representatives of the people have an exclusive right during indirect elections to vote. The general public doesn’t vote in the in-direct elections.
In a parliamentary democracy, a direct election allows all the citizens of the country to cast their votes and choose their representatives. When an indirect election takes place, only the chosen representatives vote, and the general public is forbidden from voting.
