Article 159 of Constitution of India “Oath or affirmation by Governor”

Article 160 of Constitution of India “Discharge of the functions of the Governor in certain contingencies”
The President may make such provision as he thinks fit for the discharge of the functions of the Governor of a State in any contingency not provided for in this Chapter.
Power of Governor to grant pardons, etc., and to suspend, remit or commute sentences in certain cases.-
The Governor of a State shall have the power to grant pardons, reprieves, respites, or remission of punishment or to suspend, remit or commute the sentence of any person convicted of any offence against any law relating to a matter to which the executive power of the State extends.
Article 162 of the Constitution lays down the extent of executive power of the State. Executive power is the authority to govern the State and to enforce orders.
The 7th Schedule of the Constitution of India gives the allocation of powers and functions between the Union (Centre) and the States. It consists of three lists – Union List, State List, and the Concurrent List. The Union Government/Parliament has the exclusive power to legislate on matters relating to items in the Union List. Similarly, the respective State Governments have exclusive power to legislate on matters/subjects given in the State List. Under the IIIrd List, i.e. the Concurrent List, both the Union and the State authorities have jurisdiction to legislate.
According to this Article, the State’s executive authority is exclusive for those matters that are mentioned in List II (State List) of the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution of India. This authority also extends to the IIIrd List i.e. the Concurrent List, except if the Constitution or any law that may have been passed by the Parliament say otherwise.
This Article does not specify the definition of what executive power or function is, but is only concerned with the area of or distribution of the executive powers of the State. Article 162 states that the powers of the State executive extend to those matters upon which the State has the power or the authority to legislate/make laws, and are thereby not confined to those matters over which the States have already legislated upon. Similarly, Article 73 of the Constitution lays down the extent of executive power of the Union.
If any law that has been enacted by the Parliament lays down that the Union authorities have the power or duty to execute a certain law on a subject in the Concurrent List, then, the State would not be left with the power to exercise executive functions in relation to that subject (up to the extent of powers exercisable by the Union authorities).
Any decision in exercise of the executive power of the Government can be reviewed by the Court under Article 226 of the Constitution. The judiciary’s powers are limited to examining whether the Government acted in a bona fide manner and on relevant considerations only.
According to the wordings of Article 162, the extent of executive power of a State is coextensive with its legislative power. In the Concurrent List i.e. the IIIrd List, the executive power of the State would be subject to any laws conferring power to execute on the Union. Where the powers of executing a law on a subject mentioned in the Concurrent List are conferred upon the Union Authorities/Government, by any law enacted by the Parliament or by the Constitution, the executive powers of the State to that extent would stand abrogated.
Council of Ministers to aid and advise Governor.-
- There shall be a Council of Ministers with the Chief Minister at the head to aid and advise the Governor in the exercise of his functions, except in so far as he is by or under this Constitution required to exercise his functions or any of them in his discretion.
- If any question arises whether any matter is or is not a matter as respects which the Governor is by or under this Constitution required to act in his discretion, the decision of the Governor in his discretion shall be final, and the validity of anything done by the Governor shall not be called in question on the ground that he ought or ought not to have acted in his discretion.
- The question whether any, and if so what, advice was tendered by Ministers to the Governor shall not be inquired into in any court.
Other provisions as to Ministers: –
- The Chief Minister shall be appointed by the Governor and the other Ministers shall be appointed by the Governor on the advice of the Chief Minster, and the Ministers shall hold office during the pleasure of the Governor.
- Before a Minister enters upon his office, the Governor shall administer to him the oaths of office and of secrecy according to the forms set out for the purpose in the Third Schedule.
Conduct of business of the Government of a State.-
- All executive action of the Government of a State shall be expressed to be taken in the name of the Governor.
- Orders and other instruments made and executed in the name of the Governor shall be authenticated in such manner as may be specified in rules to be made by the Governor, and the validity of an order or instrument which is so authenticated shall not be called in question on the ground that it is not an order or instrument made or executed by the Governor.
- The Governor shall make rules for the more convenient transaction of the business of the Government of the State, and for the allocation among Ministers of the said business in so far as it is not business with respect to which the Governor is by or under this Constitution required to act in his discretion.
The Governor has delegated his powers to the State Government through “Rules of Business of the Government of Haryana, 1977”. The exercise of powers is regulated by law.
Duties of Chief Minister as respects the furnishing of information to Governor, etc It shall be the duty of the Chief Minister of each State
- to communicate to the Governor of the State all decisions of the council of Ministers relating to the administration of the affairs of the State and proposals for legislation;
- to furnish such information relating to the administration of the affairs of the State and proposals for legislation as the Governor may call for; and
