Which emergency is often referred to as President's Rule?


SOLUTION
There are three types of emergencies: national emergency, state emergency and financial emergency. State emergency is often referred to as President’s Rule. State emergency is declared under Article 356, in the event when the state government collapses and the constitutional machinery fails in a particular state. It can be imposed for a period of six months and can last only for three years with parliamentary consent required every six months. The Governor, the President’s representative in the state, governs the state under emergency in the name of the President.
