The constitution of a country is considered the source of powers and authority of government. It lays down authority of government. It lays down precisely what the powers of a particular government agency are, what thing it can, or cannot do. The idea is to minimize confusion and conflict of operation between the various organs of the government. Equally important is to lay down the limits of what a government can do its citizens. A constitution is concerned with two problems : the relation between different organs of the government, and between the government and the citizens. More than any thing else constitution is an instrument of controlling the abuse of power by the government. The book comprises of the detailed description of Indian constitution with its various features.
