    Superb, must read book for civil service aspirants

    This a very good book. Everything is very well structured. You don't need to make notes.
    But don't just read from the start. Read the books by correlating the chapters. For ex- read President, then Vice- President, then go for Governor. Read Prime minister, council of ministers then go for CM and state councill of ministers.

    Must read for Civil Aspirants

    Every year around 90% of questions in UPSC CSE Prelims can be directly solved in Laxmikanth ( 2014 Prelims had 11 questions in Polity , out of which 9 could be solved in Laxmikanth. ) , which means one good preparation can give you ~20 marks in prelims.

    That is why Indian Polity by M. Laxmikanth is a MUST read.

    An extremely well-written and a highly useful book

    This book is one of the must reads for those preparing for civil services / other state services examination. The book is very methodically structured and the chapters are short and concise. The book covers among, inter alia, the chapters on Parliament and various Committees which I found particularly useful. The author has also tried to incorporate as much of comparison between the constitutions of select States as possible and to me, I believe, he has done justice to the cause.
