Abstract

The strength, vitality and resilience of Indian federalism have been able to significantly remould the political behaviour of the Indian communist parties, otherwise opposed to the basic tenets of federalism. If Indian federalism has been a political-institutional response to the manifold diversity of India, then the Indian communist parties, by complying with the norms of federal democracy, have also learnt to adapt themselves to India's diversity in order to build on it. This study examines the evolving relations between the Indian communist parties and Indian federalism, the impact of the latter on the former, and the theoretical adequacies of the communist parties in India to genuinely comprehend federalism.
