Ministers of India
Ministers of India the “Government of India” have 51 Ministry Departments. As well as “State Ministers of India” is also there. The idea of federalism envisioned in our Constitution requires the state and center to work in parity with each other with the center acting autonomously in certain conditions. Following points will make it more clear. “Ministers of India” have to monitoring funds and administration in Ministry of Departments.
- The MPs from each state in Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha ensure that the interest of their state is expressed at the central level which further helps in decision making by the relevant department.
- The allocation of funds by the centre, revised upto 60–40 ratio in the 14th Finance commission, can only be achieved properly when it’s critically scrutinised at the centre leaving all speculations.
- The role of the government under the DPSPs is also to ensure that the Centrally Sponsored Schemes are inplemented well not only at the state level but also through the 3 local tiers of the Panchayats and the Municipalities.
- Art. 3 and Art. 4 gives power to the centre to admit, create or alter the boundaries of the states with the states free to give their opinion in this regard. Thereby, requiring the centre to keep a close view in maintaining the stabilities of the states.
- Delegated Legislation allows for the overall policy framework for implementing the various laws approved by the government which differs from state to state. Thereby, requiring experts/technical members (separate dept.) at the center.
- In conditions of grave disorder withing the state or within the State legislatures (as seen in the case of Assam, recently), centre should be pro-active in taking decisions for maintaining peace and stability within the state. Further granting the autonomous powers to the Centre.
That’s all I could come up as of now. There will be several other reasons as weel.
