The Assam Reorganisation (Meghalaya) Act, 1969

Legislative power of the Governor

50. Power of Governor to promulgate Ordinances during recess of Legislative Assembly.-

(1) If at any time, except when the Legislative Assembly is in session, the Governor is satisfied that circumstances exist which render it necessary for him to take immediate action, he may promulgate such Ordinance as the circumstances appear to him to require:

Provided that the Governor shall not without instructions from the President, promulgate any such Ordinance, if-

(a) a Bill containing the same provisions would under the Constitution or this Act have required the previous sanction of the President for the introduction thereof into the Legislative Assembly of Meghalaya; or

(b) he would have deemed it necessary to reserve a Bill containing the same provisions for the consideration of the President; or

(c) an Act of the Legislature of Meghalaya containing the same provisions would under this Act have been invalid unless, having been reserved for the consideration of the President, it had received the assent of the President:

Provided further that the Governor shall not, except on the advice of the Chief Minister of Assam, promulgate any such Ordinance if with respect to a Bill containing the same provisions he would have deemed it necessary under this Act to obtain the advice of the Chief Minister before assenting thereto.

(2) An Ordinance promulgated under this section shall have the same force and effect as an Act of the Legislative Assembly assented to by the Governor, but every such Ordinance-

(a) shall be laid before Legislative Assembly and shall cease to operate at the expiration of six weeks from the reassembly of the Legislative Assembly or if before the expiration of that period a resolution disapproving it is passed by the Legislative Assembly, upon the passing of the resolution and

(b) may be withdrawn at any time by the Governor.

(3) If and so far as an Ordinance under this section makes any provision which would not be valid if enacted in an Act of the Legislature of Meghalaya assented to by the Governor, it shall be void:

Provided that- (a) for the purposes of section 35 relating to the effect of an Act of the Legislature of Meghalaya which is repugnant to an Act of Parliament or an existing law with respect to a matter enumerated in the Concurrent List in the Seventh Schedule to the Constitution, an Ordinance promulgated under this section in pursuance of instructions from the President shall be deemed to be an Act of the Legislature which has been reserved for the consideration of the President and assented to by him;

(b) for the purposes of section 36 relating to the effect of an Act of the Legislature of Meghalaya which is repugnant to an Act of the Legislature of the State of Assam or an existing law with respect to a matter enumerated in Part C of the Second Schedule, an Ordinance promulgated under this section on the advice of the Chief Minister of Assam shall be deemed to be an Act of the Legislature which has been assented to on the advice of the Chief Minister.
