Abhijeet Kumar Singh, BBA LLB, Kalinga University, Raipur & Mahima Tandan, BA LLB, Kalinga University, Raipur


The President approved three contentious agricultural regulations in September 2020, which led to one of the largest demonstrations in India. They aim to change how Indian agriculture does business and have asked the federal system of India different questions, where legislation is assigned via the Union, the State, and Competition List, outlined in the 7th Schedule of the Constitution. The lists separate different subjects and enable the Union and the State legislature to formulate and enact legislation in their respective areas. Agriculture is an object of state concern that includes all associated issues such as cattle, irrigation, etc. Entry 33 of the Concurrent List is the foundation for this debate since farms' legislation has been adopted under the pretense of this entry. The authors seek to give a realistic picture of the legislative competence of Union and State legislatures via this article and concentrate on current agriculture legislation.
