Indian parliamentary democracy has no match in the world and democratic values are part and parcel of the life of the common man in India. A democratic parliament will seek to foster a vibrant civil society and to work closely with it in finding solutions to problems facing the country and in improving the quality and relevance of legislation. Informing citizens about the work of Parliament is not just a concern for the fourth estate, but a responsibility of Parliaments themselves. The Open and Distance Learning System with its inherent flexibility and affordability has emerged as an important mode for providing education and awareness to various sections of the society in the present day educational scenario. Being the forerunner in many democratic innovations in India, the Kerala Legislative Assembly successfully conducts a Certificate Course in Parliamentary Practice and Procedure in the distance education stream to propagate the idea, principle, virtues, philosophy and practice of parliamentary democracy.
