NATIONAL SEMINAR ON ‘’Centre State Relations Under Indian Constitution”28th MARCH 2020 (Saturday):

About the Seminar:

India adopted a Federal Constitution where the powers have been divided into the Centre Government and the State Governments. Both Units are entitled to perform their functions within their assigned area and cannot go out of it or encroach on the area assigned to the other. However the Federal framework of the Indian Constitution provides for a good deal of centralization. The Union Government has a large sphere of action and plays a more dominant role than the States. There is a long Concurrent List containing subjects of common interest to both the Centre and States in which both Centre and State Governments can legislate and in case of conflict the Centre is to dominate. The Emergency provisions provide a way of transforming the normal Federal fabric into an almost unitary system, so as to meet national exigencies effectively. In certain circumstances the Parliament becomes competent to legislate even in the exclusive field of the State. The process of amending the Constitution for that matter is not very rigid. The Constitution of India is a single frame which applies to Centre as well as States and no Unit can get out of it but has to work within this framework. No State Government can frame its own Constitution and every Unit is to be governed by the provision of Constitution of India.
