Contact Us Search India takes great pride in describing itself as the world's largest democracy. However, this democracy is meaningful significantly because it is encapsulated in a federal structure. While democracy represents the majority opinion, federalism accommodates and links it to the voice of the minority, lending a flavour of social justice.
This ensures harmonious functioning of the entire system. Federalism and cultural and ethnic pluralism have given the country's political system great flexibility, and therefore the capacity to withstand stress through accommodation.
However, continuation of the same requires not simply federalism, but cooperative and constructive federalism. The Judiciary has used numerous phrases to describe this concept of cooperative federalism, though all of them, in essence, have the same meaning.
Birch and others have called cooperative federalism. Chief Justice Beg called the Constitution 'amphibian', If then our Constitution creates a Central Government which is 'amphibian', in the sense that it can move either on the federal or on the unitary plane, according to the needs of the situation and circumstances of a case Bommai v Union of Indiathe phrase pragmatic federalism was used.
In the words of Justice Ahmadi, It would thus seem that the Indian Constitution has, in it, not only features of a pragmatic federalism which, while distributing legislative powers and indicating the spheres of governmental powers of State and Central Governments, is overlaid by strong unitary features In State of Haryana v State of Punjab, semi federal was used.
Historical Roots of Cooperative Federalism Since the ancient period, kingdoms or empires that have ruled over the Indian subcontinent have practiced federal policies because in all the internal affairs, the chieftain and his vassal state was left very much alone.
This policy of non-intervention in local affairs was a practical necessity because natural diversities of the people of the subcontinent were so great that that they could only be made a part of a single empire if no or very little effort was made to impose a common set of beliefs.
The disintegration of the Mauryas and the Mughals is partly attributed to the fact that monarchs like Jehangir and Aurangzeb did not pay sufficient heed to this dictum and tried to impose codes of behaviour that offended many of their subjects.
Hence after the Revolt ofwhen the British decided to leave the Indian Princes alone and withdrew their interventionist measures like Doctrine of Lapse and banned use of greased cartridges of animal fat, the British were simply confirming to a pattern of Government that was already ages old.
Further, the spirit of cooperative federalism was a significant contributor to Sir Vallabhai Patel's method of political mobilisation by which he could successfully persuade and cajole some princely states to join the Indian Union while simultaneously maintaining the unity of the nation.
Seeds of cooperative federalism can be traced right from the Regulating Act of which set up a system whereby the British Government supervised regulated the work of the East India Company but did not take power for itself. The Government of India Act, provided for a federal India, however superficial, by envisaging a dual form of government called 'dyarchy'.
The Report of the Indian Statutory Commission of gave a federal solution by proposing to introduce dyarchy at the centre and to advance from diarchy to fully responsible government in the provinces. The same was sought to be achieved by the Government of India Act, Inafter a great deal of confrontation, Provincial Autonomy commenced.
From that point until the declaration of war inLord Linlithgow tirelessly tried to get enough of the Princes to accede to launch the Federation. The Cabinet Mission of provided that Union of India should deal with Foreign Affairs, Defence and Communication and all subjects other than Union subjects and all residuary powers were to vest in the Provinces.
Jawaharlal Nehru, while moving his Objectives Resolution on 13 December,reiterated that the need for a measure of uniformity in regard to apparatus and machinery of government at the Central level was to be considered in cooperation and consultation with the states, and that all power and authority of the Sovereign Independent India, its constituent parts and organs of government, are derived from the people.
The Constituent Assembly members did a commendable job by envisaging a cooperative federalism set up because in the turbulent and bloody circumstances prevailing at that time and in the wake of India's partition, it could have been very easy to swing towards at least a highly centralised federation, if not unitary, in place of a quasi federation, as the latter is much more difficult to work out, demanding a lot of ground work, time, draftsmanship as well as 'vision' which could foresee that only a cooperative federal set up could ensure that the needs of security, defence, urge for a welfare state and meeting the situation of economic crisis are catered to along with addressing the demands of the country's constituent states, as a result of which India as a nation would last.
Hence, even though federal character seemed to be a practical imperative by reason of India's sheer size and diversity, yet this assumption should not be taken for granted.Development of Cooperative Federalism In India: India takes great pride in describing itself as the worlds largest democracy.
