Polity and Constitution For UPSC Preparation
One of the UPSC’s favourite topics is Indian politics and governance. For the IAS prelims and main exams, Indian politics and governance is a crucial topic. Digital India is one of the government of India’s main undertakings, and good governance also includes digital governance. The shortened version of the IAS main test paper 2 is the Indian Polity and Governance topic.
The UPSC prelims question paper has almost 15 to 20 direct and indirect questions from the IAS syllabus’s Indian Polity and Governance module. The questions that appear in this section look to be simple, but they are not. The terminology used in the Indian Polity questions is quite perplexing and can be interpreted in a variety of ways.
For the IAS prelims exam, students must comprehend the syllabus for the Indian Polity and Governance portion.
Candidates should study and understand the NCERT book “Constitution at Work” to begin their IAS preparation for Indian Polity and Governance. This book explains Indian political topics in an easy-to-understand manner.
It also teaches key principles in political systems all around the world, as well as the Constitution’s philosophy. This is very crucial for IAS preparation, and candidates can prepare UPSC essays and IAS main answers based on the Constitution’s philosophy.
Candidates should begin with three things after finishing the NCERT book. To begin, they should read the Indian Constitution (Bare Act) in order to grasp the language and approach of the country’s foundational law. The Constitution of India is the supreme law of the land, and no other Act can override it.
M. Laxmikanth’s Indian Polity is a must-read for IAS candidates, and they should read it at least three times to internalise the important ideas and facts presented in the book. All Indian processes and legalities are defined in this book.
The third is the editorial in the newspaper. Newspapers and editorials provide the most up-to-date information about current events in the country. It also served as a warning regarding a crucial topic that may be addressed in the IAS test.
Candidates might refer to the DD Basu book for the Fundamental Rights and Emergency provisions while studying with the Laxmikanth book. It will give you a more in-depth understanding of the idea. The book by PM Bakshi will present a more socialist perspective on India’s Constitution.
To learn more about the Acts and ongoing bills of the Parliament, candidates should visit the PRS and Rajya Sabha websites. These websites offer a thorough examination of the laws and bills that have been passed. After receiving diverse but important information from various stakeholders, the candidates can establish their opinions on the topics.
