In this context, adult education scheme, social insurance, and relief work can all be considered examples of substantive public policies as they aim to address specific needs or provide assistance in certain areas. However, "general welfare" is not a specific policy but rather a broad concept that encompasses various aspects of societal well-being. Therefore, it is not an example of a substantive public policy.

This is because both India and Canada follow a federal system of government, where power is divided between the central and state/provincial governments. Additionally, both countries have a written constitution and a parliamentary form of government. The procedure for amending the Indian constitution, including the requirement for a special majority of votes in both houses of parliament, is similar to that of Canada.
