• Introduction to the Constitution of India

Introduction to the Constitution of India provides an in-depth look at the intricacies of the Indian Constitution, the longest written constitution of any sovereign state in the world. The Indian Constitution came into play on January 26, 1950, and has undergone several amendments since its enactment. It has an English version and an official Hindi translation. The original version is hand-written and has beautiful calligraphy. Durga Das Basu has attempted to decipher its individual articles for the benefit of the layman. His book, Introduction to the Constitution of India, aims to take the reader through every detail of the Indian Constitution. The book is divided into eight sections. The sequence of chapters more or less matches the sequence of the corresponding parts in the written Constitution. The first section introduces the Indian Constitution, and delves into its historical background, creation, philosophy, and outstanding features. It acquaints the reader with the Fundamental Rights and Duties, and the Directive Principles of State Policy as written in the Constitution. It also covers the possibilities and procedures of amendment. The remaining sections include information about the government of the Union, the government of the States, and the administration of Union Territories. The special case of the governance of Jammu & Kashmir is presented in a separate chapter. The functioning of local governments through panchayats, municipalities, and planning committees is also covered. A separate section is dedicated to the judicial system, including the Supreme Court and High Courts. The last chapter of the book is devoted to the study of the federal system. It includes topics like the Emergency provisions, inter-state relations, elections, languages, and minorities. The book is considered to be very informative and helpful to every citizen of India, more so for students of Political Science. top Table of Contents Part 1: Nature of the constitution 1.
