Cooperative federalism, also known as marble-cake federalism, is a concept of federalism in which national, state, and local governments interact cooperatively and collectively to solve common problems. But having cooperative federalism is a difficulty in  India. There are various challenges to cooperative federalism:

  • Rising culture of multi party system and coalition politics
  • Increasing number of states and demands for more.
  • Majority government at the centre are not better disposed towards centre.
  • Increasing economic competition.
  • Addressing issues of NE and J&K
  • Inter state disputes on resources like water resources etc.
