India fulfills several principles that are essential for a federation. They are as follows:

  • Existence of Union and State Government- In the spirit of Federalism, there are two set of governing authority, in the Union and the in the states.
  • For Example, the Central Governments headquarter is in Delhi and that of Uttar Pradesh is in Lucknow.
  • Division of Power- Power has been divided between the Union and the State governments by the Union, State and Concurrent lists. While, the Centre can make laws on the subjects entrusted in the Union list, State Government can make laws on the subjects stated in the State List. While both have the authority to deal with the matters in the Concurrent List.
  • Constitution the Supreme Authority- Like in all Federations, the Constitution clearly lays down the distribution of power between the Union and the State.
  • Bicameral Legislature- In the state there are two houses, the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha . While the Lok Sabha has members who are directly elected by the citizens of the country, the Rajya Sabha has members who are indirectly elected.
  • Separation of Powers- India has a three tier government, where powers are divided between the Legislature, Executive and the Judiciary.
