Rajasthan is a diverse state with an eclectic mix of people of varied customs, culture, cuisines, and  costumes.  The state is blessed with enchanting forts and palaces, and havelis. It is the place where romance and bravery flow in conjunction.  The combing of erstwhile princely states of Rajputana, after Independence in 1947, took place in different stages. The first stage involved the merging of the princely states of Karauli Bhratpur, Dholpur, and Alwar forming the Matsya Union on March 17th, 1948. The second stage of union was completed on March 25th, 1948, with the merging of princely states of Banswara, Tonk, Dungarpur, Bundi, Jhalawar, Shahpura, Kishangarh, Pratapgarh, and Kota. With the merging of of Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Jaipur and Jodhpur the union of Rajasthan was finally completed and on March 30, 1949, the state of Rajasthan was formed as a separate state of Union of India.

The Government of Rajasthan which is the supreme governing authority of Rajasthan including  its 33 districts consists of an Executive, led by the Governor of Rajasthan, a Judiciary and a Legislative like all other states of India.

The Governor is appointed by the President of India on the advice of the Central government. The Chief Minister leads the legislature and houses the Vidhan Sabha (Legislative Assembly) and the Secretariat. The Rajasthan High Court is having its main seat and is situated in Jodhpur. It has a bench at Jaipur which looks after the jurisdiction of the  neighbouring districts of Rajasthan. The present Legislature of Rajasthan is unicameral which consists of 200 MLAs at present the term of which is 5 years, unless dissolved earlier. The main parties involved in the politics of Rajasthan are BJP and Indian National Congress.
