The 11th edition of V. N. Shukla's Constitution of India provides a reflective, lucid and comprehensive account of the Indian Constitution. First published in 1950, the book has consistently grown in popularity.
Today, academics, lawyers and judges recognise this classic text as an authority and confidently cite and rely upon it. The Indian Supreme Court cited the 10th Edition in Rameshwar Prasad v. Union of India, [(2006) 2 SCC 1], and the 7th Edition in Umaji Keshnao Meshram v. Radhikabai, 1986 [(Supp) SCC 401)], while the Constitutional Court of South Africa cited the 9th Edition in Nalandazeli Fose v. The Minister of Safety and Security (case CCT 44/96).
Prof. Singh has thoroughly revised and brought up to date the 11th Edition; including the latest Constitutional Amendments and Supreme Court decisions on issues such as, equality and affirmative action, education, women's rights, and principles of constitutionalism and judicial review, which have far reaching implications on individual rights and for the State.
This book is not only valuable for legal scholars, judges, practitioners, government officials and NGOs, but for anyone interested in learning about the principles on which we govern and are governed.
