Answers with Explanation
  1. (2) President's rule is enabled by Article 356 of the Constitution of India, which gives authority to impose central rule if there has been failure of the constitutional machinery in any state of India. It is imposed for six months and can last for a maximum period of three years with repeated parliamentary approval every six months. But 42nd amendment act of 1976 extended the one time duration of state emergency from 6 months to 1 year. Therefore from now on after every 1 year Parliament needs to approve the same. If the emergency has to to be extended for more than three years, it can be done by a constitutional amendment, as has happened in Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir.
  2. (4) In concept social justice is very well articulated in the Constitution of India(1950). The Preamble of our constitution use of term "social justice- social, economic and political, the equality of status and opportunity is provided by the the Constitution maker for futuristic development of the country".
  3. (2) National emergency is caused by war, external aggression or armed rebellion in the whole of India or a part of its territory. Such an emergency was declared in India in 1962(Indo-china war), 1971( Indo-pak war), and 1975(declared by indira gandhi to escape conviction). The president can declare such an emergency under Article 352.
  4. (3) In the first meeting after election in which speaker and vice speaker is selected by members of parliament, that meeting is hold under the senior most member of parliament is called protem speaker.
  5. (2) The separation of powers, often imprecisely used interchangeably with the trias politica principle, is a model for the governance of a state. The normal division of branches is into a legislature, an executive and a judiciary. Division of powers is the often overlooked principle of dividing governmental power among the federal, state and local governments.
  6. (3) In the absence of the Speaker, the Deputy Speaker discharges his functions. A member from the Panel of Chairmen presides over the House in the absence of both the Speaker and the deputy speaker.
  7. (2) Article 42 of the Indian Constitution has provision for just and humane conditions of work and maternity relief. It comes under the Directive Principles of State Policy.
  8. (2)The high court has the original jurisdiction to hear petition and give decision challenging election of the Lok Sabha/ Vidhan Sabha.
  9. (3) Preventive detention is an imprisonment that is putatively justified for non-punitive purposes. In contrast to this, under preventive detention the government can imprison a person for some time without a criminal charge. It means that if the government feels that a peron being at liberty can be a threat to the law and order or the unity and integrity of the nation, it can detain or arrest that person to prevent him from doing this possible harm.
  10. (2)
