The position of president of India is, indeed, not unimportant. He is not a rubber stamp, nor is he real ruler. He does not indeed rule, but he does not either reign. He asserts when it is necessary. It is the president who preserves, protects and defends the constitution. As he himself maintains the constitution, he is not answerable to any court, nor can any criminal proceedings be instituted against him. The president is an integral part of Parliament of India, and enjoys following legislative powers.

  • He can summon or prorogue the parliament and also dissolve the Lok sabha. He can also summon joint sitting of both houses of parliament, which is presided over by the speaker of the Lok sabha.
  • He can address the parliament at the commencement of the first session after each general election and the first session of each year.
  • He can send message to the houses of parliament, whether with respect to a bill pending in the parliament or otherwise.
  • He can appoint any member of Lok sabha to preside over its proceedings when the office of both speaker and deputy speaker fall vacant. Similarly, he can also appoint any member Rajya sabha to preside the proceedings when the offices of both chairmen and deputy chairmen fall vacant.
  • He nominates 12 member of the Rajya Sabha from amongst persons having special knowledge or practical knowledge experience in literature, science, art and social service.
  • He can nominate two members to lok sabha from Anglo-Indian community.
  • He decides on questions as to be disqualifications of members of the parliament, in consultation with the Election commission.

What is process job in bihar block 

by Jitendra Sharma

Well based on the complexity of questions from constitution, Current affairs, Science and economics ....with an additional option E, it can be said that CUT O FF for General Should be around 80-82....Even many other site including VISION IAS has also speculated the cut off around 84 for General !!

 

by Surovi

ye jo log 90-92 ki baaten kar rahen unhe khud pata nahi ki what is the right answer for all question. No website has so far given correct solution for all question. I agree with surovi. Th cut off this time should go even lower than last year around 82-84 for general!!

I guess cut off this time should not exceed 85 for general category. Option Ewas very confusing.science was really the most tougest part. !!

by Bandana

at least 10-15 solutions given on the website is absolutely wrong. even most of the answers of science part are also wrongly given by VISION IAS. MY expectation for PT cut off this year should be around 84-85 for general cat. 78-81 For bc . Hardly 100-200 candidate would be able to score 90-95. so the common basis of cut off should linger around 85-82 for general Cat.
