Answer the following in brief.

Why did the Constitution adopt a federal system for India?

Answer :

India has adopted a federal form of government in which there is a strong national government at the centre and powers are distributed to the state and local government.


The Constitution makers went ahead with the thought of federalism because of India's large size and diversity. India shares a rich religious, cultural, regional and linguistic heritage which is marked by difference and unique characteristics. It would have been impossible to govern this multiculturalism by complete centralization as it would have led to the breakdown of the union. That is why India adopted a federal system.
