Description
Preface

I am pleased to place before the readers a thoroughly revised, enlarged and updated edition of this widely read book on Indian Polity.

In 2011 and 2013, the UPSC changed the pattern and syllabus of the preliminary and main examinations, respectively. In both the changes, the scope of Indian Polity has been considerably increased. Hence, this new edition of the book is more relevant now and is aimed to meet the expanded need of the aspirants. In the course of revision and updation of this edition of the book, the various new developments related to the subject like recent constitutional amendments, parliamentary legislations, executive decisions and supreme court judgments have been taken into account.

Changes in this Edition:

1. Addition of 8 new chapters.
2. Addition of new appendices.
3. Inclusion of 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 preliminary questions with answers.
4. Inclusion of 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 mains questions.
5. Updation of the year – wise break-up of the UPSC questions in the preliminary and main examinations.
6. Inclusion of additional updated information on a number of topics.
7. List of Articles included at the end of each chapter.
8. New items included in various chapters.
New Chapters:

1. Basic Structure of the Constitution
2. Cabinet Committees
3. Parliamentary Committees
4. Parliamentary Forums
5. Central Bureau of Investigation
6. Cooperative Societies
7. Special Provisions Relating to Certain Classes
8. Electoral Reforms
New Appendices:

1. Flag Code of India
2. Allied Amending Acts at a Glance
3. Model Code of Conduct Relating to Elections
I firmly believe that is now a very comprehensive and updated manual. It is a matter of immense satisfaction that the previous three editions of this book have received an overwhelming response from readers. I am confident that readers would continue to repose their faith in this edition as well.

Constructive comments and concrete suggestions to further improve the book are welcome and shall be gratefully acknowledged.
