How are changes made to power-sharing arrangements in India?


The basic structure of the Constitution makes it clear about power sharing between Central and State governments in India. Hence, it is difficult to make changes to the power-sharing arrangements in India.

  • The Parliament cannot easily make changes to the power sharing arrangements between Central and State governments.
  • If any changes are going to be made then these changes should have approval of both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.
  • Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have to pass the changes with at least two-thirds majority.
  • Once the above process is cleared then at least half of the total states in India have to ratify the changes.
  • If there are any disputes between Central and State Governments regarding power-sharing then the Judiciary plays an important role in implementing the provisions and procedures mentioned in the Constitution.
