"Landmark Judgments by the Supreme Court of India form the very basis of the Rule of Law, the policies and the structure of our Government in India. Hence, anyone concerned with the functioning of the ‘State’ must have the awareness and understanding of the law laid down by the Highest Court of the Land. Based on this premise, the future Bureaucracy and Civil Servants of India, more than anybody else must be abreast of the latest law and the judgments of the Supreme Court. It is therefore not surprising that the U.P.S.C. has increasingly been including the important ‘landmark’ judgments of the Supreme Court in the Civil Services Examination over the last several years. As a practicing lawyer of the Supreme Court by profession and a mentor for UPSC-Civil Service aspirants by passion, for the last decade and a half, Dr. Sidharth Arora has seen both ‘worlds’ up close and personal. This book is an attempt to simplify the ‘voluminous’, ‘complicated’ and ‘heavy on legal language’ judgments of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India into a language that is comprehensible to the ’non-law students’ and consequently easy to assimilate, understand and answer in the Civil Service examination by U.P.S.C. The book covers 35 Landmark Judgements by the Supreme Court which, according to the author, are the Most Important for UPSC-Civil Service aspirants. The aspirants will not only form a fair understanding of the cases but will also understand how the court arrived at the judgment, how the Constitution was upheld and the rights of the citizens were protected. The book further provides some other important Judgments in the form of a table in the Annexure. Previous questions of Preliminary & Main Exams related to the subject at hand are also covered in the book. All important legal terms are defined in the footnotes or Annexure. The understanding of the judgments will prove to be helpful in answering the UPSC-CSE Prelims, General Studies Mains examination especially the Paper 2 & 4 on Polity & Ethics respectively, Essay Writing and the Personality test of the Civil Services Examination."
