Delegation of Union Functions to the States Under Article 258(1), The President with the consent of the Governor of a state entrusts either conditionally or unconditionally to that Government or to its officers, functions in relation to any matter to which the executive power of the Union extends. Under Article 258(2), Parliament is empowered to use State machinery for the enforcement of Union Laws. For such purpose, it can confer powers or impose duties on State functionaries. The Constitution also makes provision for the entrustment of the executive functions of the centre to a state without the consent of the state. But, in this case, the delegation is by the parliament and not by the President. All India Services are common to both the Union and the States. The officers of these services are appointed and regulated by the Centre and are placed in various States.
