What is the term of office for the President of India?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The prime minister's in India is the head of the government which is formed after an elected parliament assumes office. The term of the parliament is 5 years, and therefore the prime minister's term cannot exceed 5 years. The PM may call for early elections before the 5 year term is over. The PM may also resign and a new PM may be elected by the party having majority in the parliament without having to call for elections but only if it is within the 5 year term of the parliament. There is no limit on how many terms a PM can serve.

What are the different methods of power sharing in India?

User Avatar

Asked by Rudraneel

Power Sharing: Power sharing is the very spirit of democracy. A democratic rule involves sharing

power with those affected by its exercise, and who have to live with its effects. All communities,

social groups get their say in the governance. People have a right to be consulted on how they

are to be governed. A legitimate government is one where citizens, through participation, acquire

a stake in the system.

Power Sharing in India: India is a democratic country. People of India elect their representative

through direct franchise and representatives elect the government to make or amend rules &

regulations and to carry out day to day functioning of governance.

One basic principle of democracy is that people are the source of all political power. In a

democracy, people rule themselves through institutions of self-governance. In a good democratic

government, due respect is given to diverse groups and views that exist in a society. Everyone

has a voice in the shaping of public policies. Therefore, it follows that in a democracy political

Forms of power sharing power should be distributed among as many citizens as possible.

Forms of Power Sharing:

Power Sharing in Different Organs of Government:

Power is shared among different organs of government, such as the legislature, executive and

judiciary. Let us call this horizontal distribution of power because it allows different organs

of government placed at the same level to exercise different powers. Such a separation ensures

that none of the organs can exercise unlimited power. Each organ checks the others. This results

in a balance of power among various institutions. For example, ministers and government officials

exercise power, they are responsible to the Parliament or State Assemblies. Similarly, judges can

check the functioning of executive or laws made by the legislatures. This arrangement is called a

system of checks and balances.

Power Sharing at Different Levels:

Power can be shared among governments at different levels - a general government for the entire

country and governments at the provincial or regional level. Such a general government for the

entire country is usually called federal government. In India, we refer to it as the Central or Union

Government. The governments at the provincial or regional level are called by different

names in different countries. In India, we call them State Governments. State Governments and

Central Government have their distinct areas to exercise power. This is called federal division of


Power Sharing Among Social Groups:

Power may also be shared among different social groups, such as the religious and linguistic

groups. Indian constitution has provision for reservation of different communities like minorities,

OBCs, SC & ST and women. This is done to ensure their adequate representation in the

Government machinery.

Power Sharing Among Various Pressure Groups:

Power sharing arrangements can also be seen in the way political parties, pressure groups and

movements control or influence those in power. In a democracy, the citizens must have freedom

to choose among various contenders for power. In contemporary democracies this takes the form

of competition among different parties. Such competition ensures that power does not remain in

one hand. In the long run power is shared among different political parties that represent different

ideologies and social groups. Sometimes this kind of sharing can be direct, when two or more

Finish Line & Beyondparties form an alliance to contest elections. If their alliance is elected, they form a coalition

government and thus share power. In a democracy, we find interest groups such as those of

traders, businessmen, industrialists, farmers and industrial workers. They also will have a share in

governmental power, either through participation in governmental committees or bringing

influence on the decision making process.

Is Gandhi from India?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Gandhi believed that every person was equal (black or white) and that they should all be treated in the same way. He believed in giving Indians their rights and becoming a peaceful fighter with non-violent civil disobedience. He believed in a untied India, but that did not happen because the Muslims left to Pakistan because there were so many more Muslims and they were scared they would overpower them. Gandhi rioted against the British because he thought that the British were treating the Indians poorly. Gandhi also made speeches to get many people to join them so that eventually the British would get overwhelmed. During the separation of Muslims and Hindus, violence broke out between both groups, and Gandhi went on a fast, which stopped the fighting. Gandhi did many things to help give India Independence, and today he is considered a hero.
