The 5th Edition boasts off few important new topics and existing content has been upgraded.

- New chapters have been added to 5th edition :
1) Parliamentary Group
2) Judicial Review
3) Judicial Activism
4) PIL
5) Niti Aayog
6) Voting behaviour
7) Election Laws

- 4 new appendices have been added too

- Inclusion of Previous years questions of Polity from:
2014, 2015 and 2016 Prelims
2013, 2014, 2015 Mains

-Essentially the book is more comprehensive, it is visibly THICKER now (Check the pictures attached) and is more relevant for the latest trends of UPSC (given the unpredictability)

- Language of the book is extremely simple and straight forward and it still feels like you are being spoon fed by the author. This is great for students who are preparing on their own.

I recommend this book to first time buyers as well as those who have the 3rd/4th edition of this book.
Else, you can take photocopies of the additional material from Delhi bookshops. But must update the earlier version.

Purchase it only if u don't have 4th edition. Additional chapter u can easily cover from internet or u can xerox it from any friend. I really regretted after purchasing this as I already have 4th edition. No point spending 400 rupees if u hv 4th Ed. Otherwise laxmikant is must for polity. Thanks to amazon.

Uploaded Index of Book(Image of 3rd to 5th edition evolution 😉)
1) After few Pages you find Weight of Questions on Polity and in 2016 it was 5 questions , from 2000-2015 there were more than 10 questions but now they ask only 5 this year
2) Please read this book along with it focus on current affairs,it is very very important
3) It cost me one year , because I focused only one these traditional books and ignored the current affairs part , if you want to save your one year please read Current affairs very well and don't left any stone untouched.

Enjoy studies

If you have the 4th edition, you need not buy the latest one. No major changes have been added. However, the book is good for those new to this manual. The printing quality is a turnoff. It could be improved. Maybe the publisher took the helpless aspirants for granted who would buy it, no matter what.

I purchased it for Rs. 420 in one of the book store in Karol Bagh.. But these online stores are still in hype that, this new edition will fool peoples by selling it at Rs. 575 :( Lower price is expected than market price!!

And over-all this new book (5th edition) is fully updated with 7 new chapters & 4 new appendices,

also revised the existing topics(Planning commission to NITI)

& appendices (Up to 2016 Question Papers of Prelims & 2015 Mains QPs, PMs list, CJs list, etc)..

and recommended for CSE aspirants, Good luck!! :)

Seriously a great book for every IAS aspirant. Including each and every detail about constitution and polity in simple language which can easily understand by every person. After reading NCERT everyone must read this book to enhance skill.

It's a good book for Indian polity particularly for civil services preparation. But those who have 4 th edition, need not buy it. You can simply go through the index of this book and search for the few newly added topics over the internet, there is ample material available on it. No need to buy new book just for a few topics. It's just a sales gimmick.
