About this book

The book discusses the issue of autonomy in India’s federal system and its precision and focused nature. It inquires into the various aspects of the problem autonomy of the states and its emerging trends with special reference of Jammu and Kashmir State autonomy.

The book addresses many controversial unanswered question like – Should India adopt and opt for ‘dual’ or ‘competitive’ model of federalism, which has long since been discarded even in the land of its origin or should we evolve robust indigenous solutions to our problem of autonomy of States?  To change the metaphor, do we choose a ‘regression model’ or a ‘development model’ of our federal polity? All these discussions which deserve sustained citizen interest and national debate, have been answered in the present book.

Reviews

“Thematically the study is significant as it covers a wide range of issues connected with the concept of federalism, its application in the context of India in general terms and in relation to the special position that the (state of) Jammu & Kashmir secured under the Article 370 of the Indian constitution”.Dr. Noor Ahmad Baba, Professor, Department of Politics & Governance, Central University of Kashmir, Nowgam, Srinagar, J&K
“The book significantly covers all the constitutional developments that took place in the state of Jammu and Kashmir from the period of 1946 to 2019 in the context of Indian federalism. Likewise, the author has emphatically stated that the demand of autonomy to the state of Jammu and Kashmir is now great debate and will remain a living issue in Indian federation”.Dr. Arshi Khan, Professor, Department of Political Science, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India
“The author has not only stated an autopsy of the autonomy and special status of J&K but has also examined the implications and consequences of Article 370 of the constitutional democracy of the state and the nation”.Dr. Iftekhar Ahemmed, Professor, Department of Political Science, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India
