Expert Answer:

India is a federal republic and the Constitution of India clearly lays down the division of powers between the federal/central/union and the states/provinces. This has resulted in a balance of power between the different levels of political authority in India. The power sharing arrangment dictated by the Constitutaion lays down that state governments are not subordinate to the centre, but are essential units of the federal power structure. Any attempt on the part of the Union Government to encroach upon the powers and authority of the State Governments is resited by the states and vice versa. As a result, it is difficult to make changes to the power sharing arrangements between the Union and the State Governments.
