. What is the main difference between a federal form
of government and a unitary one? Explain with an example.
- Federalism is a system of government where the power is divided between a central authority and various constituent units of the country.
For example in India power is divided between the central government and state government.
- While in a unitary form of government there is only one level of government. The central government can pass an order to the state or local government.
For example in Sri Lanka, there is only one level of government.
In a federal form of government, there is a division of power between central and state governments like in India. Whereas in the Unitary form of government there is only one government like in Sri Lanka.
