ANSWER

UK


SOLUTION

The Indian Constitution closely follows the constitutional system of the United Kingdom. This can be seen by the fact that the Indian Constitution has borrowed following features from the British Constitution.

1. The office of the president of India is based upon the British Queen who is a ceremonial head of the state.

2. The Cabinet system of government in India is based upon the Cabinet system as prevailing in U.K.

3. Our Prime Minster is also a replica of the British Prime Minster.

4. The parliament type of government has also been adopted from the British system.

5. Just like U.K our Parliament is also bicameral, i.e it has two Houses, the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha.

6. The Lok Sabha, the Lower house of parliament in India, is also more powerful as the House of commons in the United Kingdom.

7. Like in U.K, the presiding officer of Lok Sabha is also known as the speaker. Some of his powers are identical to those of the speaker in England.

8. The privileges of the Members of Parliament in India are also similar to those enjoyed by their counterparts in U.K.
