Centre-State and Administrative Relations In India: An Analysis

Prince Raj, Chanakya National Law University. (LLM)


The present Research Project is an attempt to analyse the centre-state and administration relation as envisaged under the Indian Constitution. The author draws a clear-cut picture of administration relation of centre and during emergency and normal times. During emergencies the Indian federal arrangement can be suspended whereas normal times the Centre can descend upon the state through its powers of delegation, direction and grants in India. Articles like 256, 246, 257 and 263 are potent weapons by which the administrative activities by states can be made to fall in line to the wishes of the Centre. Throughout the course of the research project various Indian cases have been discussed to get understanding of administration relation.

Keywords: Administrative, centre-state, federal arrangement etc.
