  1. railway comes under union list.

    1. Thanks friend..It has been corrected. Sorry for the error..

  2. Admin pls check president's rule max time,its should be 1yr and min period is 6 months as per article 356 & 360

    1. But many online materials says it as 6 months no??

  3. It is imposed for six months and can last for a maximum period of three years with repeated parliamentary approval every six months. But 42nd amendment act of 1976 extended the one time duration of state emergency from 6 months to 1 year. Subsequently, 44th CAA 1978 restored the 1 year period to 6 months. Originally, the maximum period of operation of state emergency was 3 years. This 3 year period was divided into 1 year of ordinary period and 2 year of extra ordinary period for which certain conditions are to be fulfilled. Therefore from now on after every 1 year Parliament needs to approve the same. If the emergency has to be extended for more than three years, it can be done by a constitutional amendment, as has happened in Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir.
