  • question_answer If agriculture and commerce are state subjects why do we have ministers of agriculture and commerce in the Union Cabinet?

    Answer:

    Although agriculture and commerce are the state subjects we have ministers of agriculture and commerce at the union because of the wider prospect of these subjects regarding inter-state trade. So a uniform policy has to be legislated.
    Secondly, the agricultural and economic experts are part of the Planning Commission. So we require agricultural and commerce ministers in the Union for "policy making".
