Doubt Clearance Thread: UPSC 2020

Can anyone explain office of whip is mentioned in any statue or established by convention. ?

Office of whip is mentioned neither in constitution, nor in rules of house, nor in parliamentary statute. It is based on the conventions of the parliamentary system of government.

recently some act has been which has given statutory status either to whip or some other post.  Can't remember exactly.  Do you remember something about it?

Yes. While there is no mention of office of whip in the Indian constitution, it has been given a statutory status by the Leaders and chief whips of recognised parties and groups in parliament (facilities) Act 1998. It is related to facilities to leaders and chief whips of recognised parties and groups in parliament.

Thanks. Everywhere is is mentioned about Constitutional status. Nowhere about the statutory status

Hi everyone! For what period should one read current affairs for 2020 exam? Do we need to read beyond March period also?

Please proceed backwards. Do latest months first and go back as back as you can.
