The nature of the Indian Constitution

According to traditional classification followed by the political scientists - In a unitary Constitution the powers of the government are centralised in one government, the central government. The provinces are subordinate to the centre. In a federal Constitution, there is a division of powers between the federal and the state governments and both are independent in their own spheres.

The Indian Constitution possesses all the essential characteristics of a federal Constitution. The Constitution establishes a dual policy,a system of the double government with the central government at one level and the state government at the other. There is a division of powers between the central and the state  governments. Each level of government is supreme in it's own spheres. The Constitution of India is written and is supreme.
