Description : The Constitution of India is an indispensable guide for every citizen of India and part of all administrative services examinations including Civil Services Examination and other State level Examinations or SSC. This importance can be identified from the fact that almost on a consistent basis we have 10 to 15 questions from the Constitution of India in preliminary examination and it serves as the base of General Studies-2 in Main Examination with 5 to 6 questions (around 70-80 marks) each year. The importance of Indian Polity increases more if it happens that you have Law, Public Administration, Political Science or any other optional subject which requires understanding on the Constitution of India. So, to make you better aware on the Constitution of India and give greater insights on handling the questions in both stages of the Examination, we have developed this book as the most updated Constitution of India for competitive examination (up to last Amendment, i.e. 103rd) along with previous year questions asked by UPSC in Preliminary Examination (up to 2019) and Mains Examination (2013-18). Strong efforts are made to identify the changing perspectives from the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) and those perspectives are added to help you in understanding the current political and administrative developments of India in refined way and secure good marks in Civil Services and other competitive examinations.
