SHARE

This YouTube video covers the recent 7-judge bench judgment of the Supreme Court in the case of Abhiram Singh v. C.D. Commachen holding that an appeal for votes during elections on the basis of religion, caste, race, community or language, will amount to a “corrupt practice” and call for disqualification of the candidate.

Keeping in view the fact that nowadays it is very rare to see a 7-judge judgment from the Supreme Court and also the fact that this judgment is related to the important issue of purity of elections (which are covered in the General Studies paper 2 of UPSC Civil Services Examination), this issue is very important from the point of view of Civil Services Examination of UPSC.

This video is meant for aspirants of the UPSC Civil Services Examination (for IAS, IPS, IFS, Central Services Group “A”). This lecture may also be of use to candidates appearing in other competitive examinations in India.

This is Part 1 of the video on this subject.

This video has been prepared by Dr. Ashok Dhamija, a former IPS officer.
