Discretionary Powers of the Indian President

Presidential Discretion by Debtoru Chatterjee, New Delhi: Oxford University Press, 2016; xxv + 313, 995.


“There shall be a President of India—Article 52, Constitution of India.”

This being the case, it is not altogether illogical to question the necessity of the office of the President. Why cannot the Prime Minister do what the President does? The answer to this and other questions pertaining to the Indian President can be understood when one reads Presidential Discretion by Debtoru Chatterjee.
