I will pay for the following article Political System of India. The work is to be 13 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Unlike the British political system and the American political system, which are existed in their present structure for centuries, the Indian political system has emerged recently after its independence from British rule in 1947 (A short guide 2014).
After the entry of Portuguese explorer, Vasco da Gama in Calicut, India on 20th May 1498, European traders began to arrive in India through a newly discovered sea route from Europe to India (Padmanabhan 2011, p. 5). During the time, India was divided into various regions which were ruled by the regional emperors. By the end of the 16th century, the Portuguese and Dutch established their colonies on the western coast of India. In 1601, the East India Company was founded and the British made their entry into the Indian Ocean. Initially, the British were mainly focused on the trading of silk, tea, cotton, spices, indigo dye, opium, and saltpeter. In 1610, the East India Company conquered the Portuguese naval squadron in Surat and marked its own territory in India. This small settlement marked the beginning of a British rule that would last over 250 years and dominate the whole Indian subcontinent (Padmanabhan 2011, p. 10-12). With the beginning of the industrial revolution in Europe and growing competition from Dutch, Portuguese, and French, East India Company began to expand and further colonize India. Rule of East India Company lasted till 1858, when following the Indian Revolt of 1857, and under the Government of India Act 1858, the British government ended the Company rule considering its incapability to control the region and formed direct governing of India under the new British Raj (rule) (Parliament and Empire 2014). With the formation of the British Raj in 1858, the Indian political system went through massive changes in its structure and formation, marking the .beginning of modern politics.
As the British Crown replaced the Company rule in India in 1858, the British Parliament’s involvement in issues and affairs concerning India significantly increased. The Indian administration was regularly reviewed. Between 1858 and 1947, the British Parliament passed an overall 196 Acts concerning sub-continental affairs (Parliament and Empire 2014).
