Hello, the name of the course itself justifies this. It covers the concepts as mentioned in IIT JEE
in slide 13 one correction: Election commission does not have the power to deregister a party. Also, one important thing to note here would be that the removal process of the other 2 election commissioner is ambiguous as it not the same as that of the Chief Election Commissioner
