    Enacting Laws

    Enacting laws is the main duty of the Legislature. The primary duty of legislative is to make and pass the laws. According to the Indian Constitution Article 245 and 246 Parliament can make laws for the whole or any part of India.

    Article 245. Extent of laws made by Parliament and by the Legislatures of States
    (1) Subject to the provisions of this Constitution, Parliament may make laws for the whole or any part of the territory of India, and the Legislature of a State may make laws for the whole or any part of the State
    (2) No law made by Parliament shall be deemed to be invalid on the ground that it would have extra-territorial operation

    Article 246. Subject-matter of laws made by Parliament and by the Legislatures of States
    (1) Notwithstanding anything in clauses ( 2 ) and ( 3 ), Parliament has exclusive power to make laws with respect to any of the matters enumerated in List I in the Seventh Schedule (in this Constitution referred to as the Union List)
    (2) Notwithstanding anything in clause ( 3 ), Parliament, and, subject to clause ( 1 ), the Legislature of any State also, have power to make laws with respect to any of the matters enumerated in List III in the Seventh Schedule (in this Constitution referred to as the Concurrent List)
    (4) Parliament has power to make laws with respect to any matter for any part of the territory of India not included (in a State) notwithstanding that such matter is a matter enumerated in the State List
