India comes under which type of Federation and why?
India comes under ‘ a holding together’ type federation. In this type of federation, a large country divides its power between the constituent states and the National government. There is one government for the entire country and the others are governments at the state level. Both central and state governments enjoy their power independent of the other.
The Central government tends to be more powerful vis-a-vis the states. Often different constituent units of the federation have unequal powers. For example; special powers have been granted to Jammu and Kashmir.
