[Table] Comparison between various Posts/Bodies (constitutional & non-constitutional) – Revise Faster

Reading time: 2 minutes

Mindmaps >> Indian Polity >> This Page

Indian Polity is one of the most scoring as well as difficult subjects. It means it is easy to score high marks in this subject if you have your facts right. But it is difficult to score if you have confused the facts and you will come back from the exam hall with regret even though you’ve prepared the subject well but failed to do proper comparisons.

You will more likely to get confused in case of various posts/bodies like President, Vice President, PM, CM, Election Commission, Finance Commission, etc., and their tenure, composition, eligibility, who appoints them, who removes them, etc. These kinds of questions are favorite weapons of UPSC to filter out potential candidates from lakhs of aspirants.

To make your life easier, I have compiled all the constitutional and non-constitutional posts/bodies under different columns like Tenure, Composition, eligibility, Who appoints, Who removes, and Statutory/Non-statutory in a single table chart. With this chart, you don’t have to flip the pages in your laxmikanth book, back and forth for comparisons. Certain authorities/bodies not mentioned in standard books are also added to this chart.

Also, some similarities between different posts such as who holds office during the pleasure of the president or governor?, who can be removed with the same procedure as the SC judge? etc. are highlighted with the same colour.

I hope it helps boost your marks in the UPSC Prelims exam.

All the very best!!

Tenure of judges of SC and HC are subject to upper age limit only (65y and 62y respectively); there is no other condition. The six year-limit is valid for only CEC/EC and CAG.
Evidence: The present CJI, S.A. Bobde, has been a SC judge since April 2013, which is more than 6 years. His retirement is due in April 2021, thus bringing his total tenure to 8 years.
Please correct me if I am mistaken.
Thank you.
