Elections are held every four years.
As per the rules, elections to the DSGPC should be held every four years. But, due to some reason or the other, it is getting delayed. The first elections were held in 1974 and the second in 1979 but, after that, elections were held in 1995. Elections were also held in the year 2002, in the year 2007, in the year 2013 and in the year 2017.
In the year 2010, the Delhi Government made changes in Rule-14 of the Delhi Gurdwara Act 1971. As per the amended rules, only parties registered under the Societies Act can contest DSGPC elections. The registration of the contesting party should be at least one year old.
