The world is amidst the greatest global emergency since the past one and half years due to advent and emergence of COVID-19 virus. This is the greatest global emergency and crisis that has brought the entire world to a state of shutdown or in other words have turned it into the new era of virtual work arena. All the countries around the globe has come to a standstill but the process and functions of governments across the globe shall be kept on for the proper functioning of the countries. The Indian Constitution has always been a source of question leading to multiple answers and analysis. Amidst such scenario when the entire world is in such a traumatised state, there exists yet now, various ways of delegation of power. In Indian subcontinent, speaking widely, the delegation of power is seen to be at the highest level and is one of the most crucial methods of administrating the country. This paper is keen to analyse the delegation of power that was witnessed in the subcontinent during the era of COVID-19 and to analyse whether the delegated power is within the complete framework of a valid delegation. This paper is also keen to identify the fact whether a delegation, just theoretical in nature shall be held valid without the practical application of the same even in this practical world. This paper also shall try to identify the lacunae in the delegated legislation during this era by analysing the scenario from various facets.
