Amendment Powers: Definitions​ and Procedures (for UPSC CSE/IAS exam)
Sir I just want confirmation from you regarding the concepts that - an Ordinary Bill can be introduced without the prior recommendation of President and he can even send it for reconsideration; in case of Constitution Amendment Bill, no prior recommendation for introduction as well as he can't send it for reconsideration; and in case of Money Bill, prior recommendation is required but he can send back for reconsideration but he can't reject. Please clarify and confirm sir...

Yes, in general ordinary Bills doesn't require President’s recommendation, however certain Bills like when Parliament wants to create new states or want to merge existing states, requires recommendation of President, even though that Bill too is an ordinary Bill. In Constitutional amendment Bill No prior recommendation is required and President doesn't have power of sending it for reconsideration. In case of Money Bill, I have made a mistake. By slip of tongue I said Money Bill can be sent for reconsideration, which is wrong. Actually I wanted to say Financial Bill instead of Money Bill can be sent for reconsideration. When I heard my lecture, after its publication, I realized my mistake and I have clarified in the first comment written below. Money Bill can't be sent for reconsideration or rejected.

Finance Bill can be sent for reconsideration or it can also be rejected if the Bill is passed by both the Houses without prior recommendation of President.
Sir thank you so much for this prompt reply. My doubts are clarified.
