This topic – “Sources of Indian Constitution” comes under Indian Polity. It covers all those features that our constitution borrowed from other countries’ constitutions or laws. It is very important for the exam but could easily be confused in the exam hall. To make your life easier, I’ve created mnemonic stories from those features in this post. Just remembering the story would be enough to recall in the exam.
This topic of “[Study Tips] How to remember the Sources of Indian Constitution” is important from the perspective of the UPSC IAS Examination, which falls under General Studies Portion.
