Federalism and Decentralisation In India:Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu
AbstractWe examine the decentralisation process in two south Indian states: Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. These states have major role in the federal politics of the Indian polity. In this context this paper argues that there is an inverse relationship between strong federal demands and their relation to decentralisation further down the polity. These fast reforming states are strengthening the state level governments but the same does not seem to happen with decentralisation.
