Their Prime Minister and representatives are elected, and elections are held every 5 years.
It is an unwieldy task, though. A huge, impoverished population, a caste system, and a failure of their education system makes it nearly impossible to advance.

As I understand it, there is a semi-powerful elected national leader (Modi), but each of the states has its own powerful state president, and those guys are pretty much autocrats in their own state.

So I don’t think I would call it democratic to the level of the US or of England. But it’s better than Russia.
