In the modern world, democracy is not limited to its very common definition but its area or scope has been widened under the influence of global concepts and socio-economic changes.
The following points show the scope of democracy:

(i) Democratic rights are not limited to political rights like, the right to vote, to stand in elections and form political organisations. A democracy should grant some social and economic rights to its citizens.

(ii) The power sharing in democracy is extended to the power sharing between government and social groups.

(iii) Modern democracy cannot value only the voice of majority, but it respects the voice of minority as well.

(iv) However, the democracy has extended its scope from government and its activities to eliminate discrimination based on caste, religion and gender.

Transport is necessary to provide for the physical movement of people and goods from where they are abundant (such as plantations, mines, farms) to the factory where they are needed as raw materials for the manufacture of finished goods, or where they are processed.  It is again necessary to send these processed or finished goods to their markets, and ultimately, to the final consumers, both domestic and foreign. A fast, cheap and efficient transport system has led to the extension of both local and overseas markets.  This has enabled producers to specialize and engage in large-scale production with its related cost savings. It has also led to different regions specializing in those goods in which they find comparative advantage in producing on a commercial basis. Trade between different regions within and outside the country expanded. Consumers all over the world can now buy goods produced in far-off countries. Thus, they have greater choice. Standards of living have improved. The main means of transport in home trade are by road, rail, rivers and canals whilst in foreign trade they are by air and sea.

The amendments to certain features affecting the federal structure of Indian State requires special majority with ratification by half of the States. Provisions related to election to the President and its manner; extent of the executive power of the Union and the states; Supreme Court and high courts etc. fall under this. These are examples of a rigid constitution. The Parliament can alter or modify many of the laws of the Constitution by a simple majority as is required for ordinary legislations. For instance the Parliament can deal with the abolition or creation of Legislative Councils (Article 169). Further, the Parliament can change the name of boundaries, areas etc. of States through simple majority; and these changes don't even need to done via a Constitutional Amendment Bill.These amendments come under article 368. A flexible constitution is one that can be amended in the same manner as the ordinary laws are made(Means these provisions can be amended by simple majority), like British Constitution. These amendments do not come under article 368. For Example: Admission or establishment of new states, abolition or creation of Legislative Councils in states, citizenship, quorum in parliaments,second schedule and many more. Article 368 provides for two types of amendments: (a) Some provisions can be amended by a special majority of the parliament, i.e., a two third majority of the members of each house present and voting, and a majority (more than 50%), of the total membership of each house. For Example: Fundamental Rights, DPSPs, etc. (b) Some other provisions can be amended by a special majority of the parliament and with the ratification by half of the total states. For Example: Election of President and its manner, extent of the executive power of union and states, supreme court and high courts, seventh schedule, representation of states in parliament (Rajya Sabha) etc.
