Solution

The correct option is D d) All of the above
 
Answer : D
To Implement International Agreements : The Parliament can make laws on any matter in the State
List for implementing the international treaties, agreements or conventions. This provision enables the Central government to fulfil its international obligations and commitments.

During President’s Rule : When the President’s rule is imposed in a state, the Parliament becomes
empowered to make laws with respect to any matter in the State List in relation to that state. A law
made so by the Parliament continues to be operative even after the president’s rule.

During a National Emergency  : The Parliament acquires the power to legislate with respect to
matters in the State List, while a proclamation of national emergency is in operation. The laws
become inoperative on the expiration of six months after the emergency has ceased to operate.

Some examples of laws enacted under the above provision are United Nations (Privileges and
Immunities) Act, 1947; Geneva Convention Act, 1960; Anti-Hijacking Act, 1982 and legislations
relating to environment and TRIPS.
