Actually, India is a “Union of States”. Therefore, form of our constitution is federal which establishes a dual polity with the Union at the Centre and States at the periphery, each endowed with sovereign powers to be exercised in the field assigned to them respectively. The Union is not a “League of States” united in a loose relationship like U.S.A. There is a provision of strong centre during emergency in the country. However, a federal system can function smoothly if there is a sincere and active-cooperation between the two. There are many constitutional provisions which are very helpful to make cordial and smooth relations between the Centre and the States. Keeping in the view, we have made a modest attempt to understand the nature of Centre-State legislative relations (Articles 245-255) in India. Thus, the present study covers all the major constitutional aspects of legislative relations in India.
