Great book for both beginners and veterans.. :)

Civil service exam needs intensive as well as extensive preparation for both preliminary and main examination. Instead of reading 3-4 different books for the same subject, reading one book for more number of times is useful. This book is the best solution. It also helps for state civil service preparation for prelims and mains. ( I referred it for Maharashtra Public Service Commission Exam ) . Paper quality and printing is good. Content is covered in detail and in simple, lucid language. On...

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.

The languag...

very useful

i am writing this review after reading 37 chapters. One should not get afraid of so many chapters because most of them are just 2 pages. It is comprehensive, pointwise expressed in very lucid language. Every line tells and there was not too much contain. I think this is enough for preliminary. Recommended to read this book before going for Basu...

Well done Mr. Laxmikanth

This book is a masterpiece on the subject matter. It surpasses DD Basu and Subhash Kashyap in lucidity and gives absolutely perfect idea of the topic. Few questions, whose answer I was seeking for long in other books, were answered by this book (e.g. who introduces a Money Bill - Cabinet Minister, Private Member or any minister??? You also can cross check whether this answer is available in other books or not!!!!).

Again Flipkart was great in delivery and I have fallen in love with the silly...
