How are constitutional changes made in a federal system?

Answer:

  • It is not easy to make changes to power sharing of power between the Union Government and the State Government.
  • The Parliament cannot on its own change this arrangement.
  • Any change to it has to be first passed by both the houses of Parliament, with at least two- thirds majority.
  • Then it has to be ratified by the legislatures of at least half of the total states.
