Description
About the Book

Democratic and representative institutions were existing in ancient India. Many of the rules and procedure which were followed in Sabhas and Samitis were akin to the rules observed in modern day legislatures.

The Parliamentary system as we understand it today, was first introduced in the country by the British. For the first time under the Government of India Act, 1919, a bicameral Central Legislature was established and in 1921 the Council of State was inaugurated which served as the Upper House of the colonial legislature. Changes in the mode of election, composition, powers, etc. of the Council of State were brought about from time to time, mainly due to the competing compulsions of the colonial rule and the pressure of the nationalist forces.

The Government of India Act, 1935 also provided for the bicameral Central Legislature.

The Constituent Assembly which framed the Constitution for free India discussed and deli-berated on the utility of Second Chamber and finally settled for a bicameral Parliament-the House of the People being directly elected House and the Council of States representing the States.

Important documents relating to the creation and evolution of the Second Chamber in India and also the debate of the Constituent Assembly in this behalf have been included in the book for a reference.

This book marks the fifty years of Rajya Sabha which was constituted on 3 April 1952.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
