This textbook is written as per the CBCS syllabus for the following  papers of BA Political Science First year:
Indian Government and Politics [BA Programme Paper II]
Constitutional Government and Democracy in India  [Sem I Paper 1]and 
Political Process in India [Sem I paper II].  

The book covers the basic structure of Indian government; how constitutional democracy works; and the political process takes place during the functionality of Indian Democracy.

This book will acquaint students with the constitutional design of state structures and institutions, and their actual working on over a period of time. The Indian Constitution accommodates conflicting impulses (of liberty and justice, territorial decentralization and a strong union, for instance) within itself.

The book further  shows that actual politics in India diverges quite significantly from constitutional legal rules. An understanding of the political process thus calls for a different mode of analysis - that offered by political sociology. It will also familiarize students with the working of the Indian state, paying attention to the contradictory dynamics of modern state power.

The book has 27 Chapters spread over 10 Units.
The book is appended with bibliography, index and political terminology English-Hindi.

The Foreword of the book is written by Professor Rekha Saxsena , Department of Political Science, University of Delhi.
