Asymmetric federalism in India
AbstractThe focus of this paper is unequal arrangements and special treatment for some units within Indian federalism, namely. We first explore the conceptual issues Ã¢â¬â the causes and consequences of asymmetric federalism. Next, we trace the evolution of Indian federalism and analyze the factors contributing to the asymmetric arrangements in political, administrative and fiscal relations. We bring out asymmetric arrangements arising from constitutional arrangements or conventions evolved over the years. Recent political developments and asymmetric treatment due to administrative and political exigencies are also analyzed.
