Federalism in India describes the distribution of legal authority across national, state and local governments in India. It is embedded from the Canadian model of federalism. The Constitution of India establishes a federal structure to the Indian government. The Central government is the government that holds absolute supremacy over a unitary state.

Yes 2nd option is correct because under article 1st india is divided into different states and central government has greater power than states but state govts have right to take action in their states
