India is following the British political system, i.e. west-ministry system. Since its Independence, India is practicing the democracy, but so many questions and issues about the Indian democracy and democratization are on the surface that are still unanswered. It is well-known fact that, India is a country of religious, cultural, ethnic diversity. So, several questions may be centered on issues like poverty, economic dispersion, and secularism, the situation of minorities, the economic reform and the form of development.
