State Executive


The Constitution of India has provided for parliamentary system of Government in which the executive head at the Centre is the President. Likewise, at the State level there is a provision for an institution of the Governor, who enjoy the same status as the President at the Centre. The Governor is appointed by the President and his tenure is of five years. As a matter of convention, the Chief Minister is consulted before the appointment of Governor for a particular State whose domicile is also of another State - another

convention. The Governor must have the basic qualifications of being an Indian citizen and over the age of 35 years. The Governor enjoys protection against legal proceedings in the court of law as provided under Article 361. He is not answerable to the Court of Law for the exercise and performance of powers and duties of his office or for any act done or purporting to be done in the exercise or performance of his powers and duties. The Governor shall also not to be the member of the legislature either the Centre or at the State. If a member of a legislature is appointed as Governor, he shall be deemed to have vacated his seat in the legislature on the date of assumption of his office as Governor. The Governor also does not hold any office of profit. The Governor can resign and can be removed from his office by the President before the expiry of the term and there are many examples in our country when large number of Governors have been called back after the change of party in power at the Centre.
