Chanakya has made numerous prominent commitments to our general public out of which three stick out.
  • The possibility of a constitution: Chanakya was the first in Indian history who presented and supported the possibility of a constitution in India. In old occasions the King used to be the law just as the appointed authority. The King would dissect a circumstance and pass a judgment according to his will. Chanakya considered this to be giving an excessive amount of capacity to the King and detected an away from of debasement, he supported making a constitution and limit the King to being just an adjudicator who should make a decision based on the constitution and not his own will. This was a wonderful change in Indian culture as it made the decision more methodical.
  • He created the book Arthashastra (Economy) however for him economy was not just about funds, for him economy was about accounts and furthermore ensuring the wellsprings of funds which included checking defilement, creating military methodologies to spare the land and different assets from outside intrusions, making collusions with neighboring states to protect the fringes. He recommended to make the framework more administrative and furthermore upheld the idea of changing the branches of officials occasionally to keep the organization debasement free.  
  • The Mauryan Empire: Before Chanakya acknowledged Chandragupta as his devotee or his picked applicant, Mauryas were not so much as a noticeable family not to mention being anyplace near being a decision administration. Chandragupta was a valiant youngster having a place with a lower working class family with no good presence in the general public. Magadh or Bihar was the most remarkable territory in the Indian subcontinent in those days however the ruler of Magadh Dhananand was a savage and merciless ruler who thought about his subjects or the country in general. At the point when Alexander the incredible assaulted the western piece of India(Panchal) and crushed the courageous King of Panchal Poras, Magadh was the main area which has the might to challenge and halted him. As Alexander considered after attacking internal pieces of India, Chanakya who was an instructor at the renowned Takshashila college at that point visited Pataliputra (capital city of Magadh and the present Patna) to demand the lord of Magadh Dhananand to fight Alexander's military and spare the remainder of India. The haughty and glad Dhananand wouldn't answer his call and mortified him by requesting that his gatekeepers toss him out of the court. Chanakya chose to rebuff and wreck Dhananand and make somebody more appropriate the King of Magadh who can join the country and who will be benevolent to people in general. He got Chandragupta Maurya, prepared and showed him, joined a few littler regions under his authority generally by controlling them. He was fruitful in turning a part of Magadh's general public against Dhananand which included even Dhananand's own officials, spies and armed force men. He was effective in eliminating Dhananand and making Chandragupta Maurya as the King of Magadh. Chandragupta under Chanakya's direction was effective in prevailing upon the vast majority of North India and set up the Maurya tradition. Magadh under Chandragupta was solid, prosperous and just and Chanakya was at its center. Chandragupta's grandson proceeded to turn out to be likely the most remarkable sovereign India has ever had. Obviously Ashoka the incredible wouldn't be what he was had he not acquired an effectively exceptionally solid and composed realm formed by Chanakya.
