In a true federation such as that of United State of America every State irrespective of their size in terms of area or population it sends two representatives in the upper House i.e. In addition to all this, all important appointments such as the Chief Election Commissioner, the Comptroller and Auditor General are made by the Union Government. There is no provision for separate Constitutions for the states.The States cannot propose amendments to, the Constitution.The procedure of amending the Constitution in a federal system is normally rigid.Indian Constitution provides that some amendments require a special majority.
This is one of the federal features of the Indian constitution.
After this procedure the amendment is signed by the head of the state i.e; the President.
Since in India important amendments can be amended through this procedure Hence, Indian Constitution has been rightly called a rigid constitution. The Union List consists of 97 subjects of national importance such as Defence, Railways, Post and Telegraph, etc.
In other words, Governor is the agent of the Centre in the States.
The working of Indian federal system clearly reveals that the Governor has acted more as centre’s representative than as the head of the State.
