ABSTRACT:
One of the intractable questions that have confined Indian federalism is how to accommodate deep pluralism in the regions with a viable political unity with the larger federal unity of India.One of the responses of the Indian state has been to recognize sub-regional aspirations with distinct federal units by carving them out as a state. But such a response has led to the huge multiplication of demands of separate statehood. In fact, that does not seem to be an end to such demands. One of the great experiments that were tried out in this response is in Assam. This study goes into the deliberative process and institutional framework adopted to wield great diversity into a federal unit. While there can be disagreement with regard to the substantive process that led to regional consolidation, the procedures adaptable for that purpose need to be subjected to a critical scrutiny. Assam can offer a case of great complexity for this purpose.
