The governor serves as the state's chief executive. The Governor's role and the President of India's are very similar. In place of the President, the Governor is responsible for the State. A governor serves as the state's executive head, and their duties are the same as those of the president of India. According to the Indian Constitution, the system of government is identical to that of the Central Government. He serves as the notional executive leader and a representative of the national government. In contrast to being the head of state as defined by the constitution, the governor has recently come under fire for functioning as the centre’s puppet and agent. There is different committee recommendation related to the governor. Apex court plays an important role whenever there is a dispute between the governor and chief minister of state. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the role of the governor, power, duties and the latest controversies between the governor and chief minister.
