Overview for The Indian Parliament: A Critical Appraisal

The Indian Parliament: A Critical Appraisal examines the credibility and legitimacy of the Indian parliament and its functioning, and provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of India’s parliamentary democracy.

The introduction analyses the relationship between the functioning of parliamentary institutions and rapid changes in Indian society, particularly the onset of coalition politics and economic reforms. Part One examines the institutional standards of Parliament’s performance: the need for a more effective law to curb defections; the important procedure of private members’ legislation; whether bicameralism has served its original purpose; and the need for better enforcement of rules to prevent indiscipline and misbehaviour. Part Two focuses on different forms of parliamentary control, and the evolving relationship between the legislature and the executive in a time of unstable coalitions. Finally, Part Three analyses external factors affecting the internal functioning of Parliament, such as the role of the media, criminalisation of politics, and the influence of civil society organisations and movements.

This volume will be indispensable for students and scholars of political science, law and public administration, policymakers and journalists.
