PREFACE TO THE THIRD EDITION
This edition has been issued in a cheaper form so as to make the book more accessible to the public and especially to students.
The opportunity has been taken to make a number of changes of a verbal nature.
It should be noted that this book states the position under the Constitution which came into force on the 26th January 1950 and it does not deal with the subsequent reorganisation of States brought into force in November 1956.
This slightly revised but unabridged edition is now issued at a very moderate price in response to popular demand.
