The research paper deals with a comparative study of the doctrine of separation of powers. The researcher wants to highlight the basic concept of separation of power and then gradually draws a comparative analysis of its application in two different systems, the USA and India. On the one hand, the USA follows the separation of power in an absolute sense, but on the other hand, India that just partly adopted it. Building on that, the paper then turns to discuss the contemporary practices of both nations regarding the doctrine. In doing that, the researcher shows that even though the implementation of the doctrine is different. Both the countries developed and implanted the doctrine according to the needs and practical application even though it required a strict implementation. Still, both the system made their way. But in practicality, they face the same issues; in the form of executive aggrandizement, the executive is cutting the role of other branches and becoming intense day by day and dismantling all the accountability.
