Key takeaways 

  • Police, public order, All India Services and anti-corruption will fall under the executive functions of the L-G. 
  • The CM or CoM will have no say in their functioning.
  • Matters which affect the interest of any minority community shall essentially be submitted to the L-G after intimating the CM. 
  • The CoM, led by the CM, will decide service matters of non-All India Services officers, proposal to impose new tax, land revenue, reconstituting departments or offices and draft legislation.
  • However, in case of difference of opinion between the L-G and a Minister, when no agreement could be reached even after a month, the decision of the L-G shall be deemed to have been accepted by the CoM.
