Abstract


The J&K state which enjoys far greater status than other states within quasi federal polity of india was one of the 562 princely states in British ruled india. In almost all the cases these princely states surrendered whatever notional sovereignty they had to the new Indian state in exchange for guaranteed privy purses. whereas other Indian states lost their whatever kind of notional  sovereignty  they had by supplementary instruments and by agreeing to the settlement of their position and powers by constituent assembly of india  ,j&k choose to remain a unit of Indian federation only on the terms and conditions specified in instrument of accession .The state of j&k has been accorded asymmetric status under Indian federalism because of the peculiar circumstances under which it acceded to the union of india.
