"According to the Indian Embassy, India is a union that contains 28 states in addition to a total of 7 union territories. India gained its freedom in August of 1947 and India's constitution was developed in 1950 ("Political Structure"). There are several rights given to the people of India through the nation's constitution including the right to vote for every citizen that is 10 or older. In addition the Indian government has made a concerted effort to guarantee certain fundamental rights to all Indian citizens. These freedoms include belief, speech, migration, choice of occupation and freedom of assembly ("Political Structure"). The country has also established rights associated with protecting people from discrimination on the basis of religion, gender, race or creed ("Political Structure").
"India's government is composed of several different units including the executive, legislature, the Judiciary and the States. According to the Embassy the executive branch is represented by the president and the vice president. As in the United States the president of India serves as both the Head of States and the Commander and Chief of the military ("Political Structure"). Presidents in India have five year terms and they can serve more than one term. The president of India is also elected through an Electoral College system."
