Author(s): Dr. Manjula SR
Abstract: Federalism implies the system of division of powers between the Central and State Governments. India is a Quazi-Federal country with strong Centre with 97 subject matters of legislation. The framers of the Indian Constitution gave residuary matters in the hands of the Central Legislature. The States are subordinate to Central Government in co-ordinating the administration. Co-operative federalism is a pre-requisite of Indian administration through the creation of various administrative agencies. The doctrine of repugnancy will arise in matters relating to Concurrent list. If the law made by the State Legislature is in conflict with the law made by the Parliament, the Central Law will prevail over State law. The state law becomes void in view of the doctrine of Repugnancy.
