This book offers a crystal clear and basic understanding of Indian polity and administration. The book has been formatted in such a comprehensive nature that most students believe it to be a self-note and that this book facilitates the easiness of preparing one’s own notes.

It is a great book to learn about the Indian Constitution. Written in very simple language to make it easy to understand the Constitution for a layman like me.

Things are very systematized and placed orderly to make any reader walk step by step and grasp things easily.

If you’re someone who in general wants to understand and know about the constitution of our country then this one’s for you. Highly recommended.
