This chapter describes the role played by the governor in the State government. The reports of the Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) and the Centre-State Relations Inquiry Committee discussed the governors' pivotal role in considerable detail. The ARC recommended that guidelines on the manner in which discretionary powers should be exercised by the governors should be formulated by the Inter-State Council and issued in the name of the president. The report of the Committee of Governors came fairly close to suggesting a procedure for evolving a body of precedents. The governors' committee was set up 'to study and formulate norms and conventions governing the role of governors under the constitution'. Mr K. Subba Rao suggested that a governor should be ineligible for any other office under government after retirement and should be irremovable from office on any ground other than proven misbehaviour or incapacity after inquiry by the Supreme Court.
