Q- What is the principle of division of power ?

The principle of division of power means that the government splits its powers among different branches – Legislative, Executive, and Judiciary. Each branch has its own tasks, so no single branch can have all the power. This prevents misuse of power and helps in efficient functioning. For instance, the Legislature makes laws, but the Executive and Judiciary ensure they are fair and not harmful. Similarly, each branch is kept in check by the others. This way, no single part of the government can control everything in India.
