Union List: It includes subjects of national importance like defence of the country, foreign affairs, communication and currency. The Central Government alone can make decisions on these matters.
State List: It consists subjects of state and local importance such as irrigation, police, trade, commerce, agriculture and irrigation. Only the State Governments can make laws and decisions on these areas.
Concurrent List: It includes those subjects which are of common interest to both the Central as well as State Governments. It includes matters like education, forests, marriage and trade unions
