The office was intended to be an embodiment of stability, hallowed with great responsibility. In recent times, twists and turns in the Indian political scene have made the. Role of the Indian presidency very vital, decisive, challenging and even controversial at times. This study not only discusses the scope and potentiality of the Indian presidency but also finds out the functional instrumentality of this office in the unusual, political circumstances. Besides, it propagates the idea that this great political office, as envisaged by the founding fathers, is not absolute but subjected to growth to assume the new responsibilities as described by the political environment and compulsions of the country.
