India is the ‘largest democracy’ in the world. After our independence ‘Parliamentary democracy had been established in our country on 26th January, 1950 in accordance with the terms of Indian constitution. Since then India has emerged as a socialist, secular republic of people and sovereign state recognised across the globe. Democracy is firmly rooted in India.
