Bicameral Legislature consists of two houses or chambers. This concept emerged in the ancient Greece where there were two houses to represent different strata's of the society i.e one for aristocrats and one for the commoners. The modern form of bicameral legislature has two houses which are upper and lower houses. The lower house represents the states by population and the upper house represents the states equally. This helps in equal participation of all states in matters of the government. Also it helps in maintaining the checks and balances in the government.
