Constitution plays an extremely important role in deciding the way a government works, including but not limited to how it caters different issues affecting the society, both internally and externally. Therefore, it is important that countries learn from the past experiences of other countries while framing their constitution. Over the last several decades, Indian Constitution has simply been referred to as a Borrowed Constitution, because of its sections being inspired from constitutions of various nations. In this paper, I have discuss the Indian Parliamentary System and its similarities and differences from the British Parliamentary System, from which it has been influenced. Some of the notable differences have been discussed which cements the assertion that it has not been completely borrowed, rather modified to suit the Indian circumstances, and live up to the expectations of the Indian society.
