Description
In this volume, I have deviated from the Article-wise scheme adopted in the three earlier volumes covering Parts I to IVA as each of the Articles in those Parts carried specific concepts. Yet in a sense there is no deviation. The chapters of Parts V and VI which find a place have been presented Article by Article and the general scheme is not subjected to a major jolt, and more so because the Articles relating to the Union and the State Executives are almost pan materia to each other, barring certain provisions, as a result of which such Articles have been considered together.
Parts V and VI reflect the basic federal character and the institutions representing that character. Part V relates to "the Union" and comprises five chapters. Chapter I deals with the Union or Central Executive, Chapter II deals with the Legislative Wing of the Union i.e. Parliament, Chapter III deals with the legislative powers of the President, Chapter IV deals with the Union Judiciary and Chapter V deals with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.
Part VI deals with "the States". Apart from some formal changes, the scheme of Part VI is almost the same (as is usual in a federal Constitution) except the chapters on the Union Judiciary (Chapter IV of Part V) and the State Judiciary (Chapter V of Part VI). It is to be noted that the heading of Chapter V is "The High Courts" and Chapter VI of Part VI deals with the "Subordinate Courts". In other words, whereas the Union Judiciary has been covered in one chapter, the Judiciary in the States has been dealt with in two separate chapters of Part VI.
Having regard to the width of these chapters in Part V and Part VI pertaining to the Judiciary as a whole, I considered it would make convenient reading as well as better comprehension if we horizontally split these Parts by including chapters relating to the Union and the State Executive and the Parliament and the State Legislatures in this volume while setting apart the other chapters in these two Parts which concern the Judiciary for the next volume.
But as the work proceeded, I realized that it could get beyond a manageable size unlike the earlier volumes, if we went beyond the Union and State Executives. The publishers were emphatic that it would be wise to restrict the length to maintain uniformity of the sizes without, of course, compromising with the content and that pruning for brevity resulting in important and well said words in the speeches in the Constituent Assembly and good passages from the leading judgments of the Court could upset the distinguished readers.
The upshot of all this is that Parliament and the State Legislatures and the Legislative powers of the President and the Governor will find place in Volume V and the Union and the State Judiciary in Volume VI.
