What is Concurrent List?

Date: 09 Sep 2011   Group: Opinion About    Category: Miscellaneous   


I recently read in an article that Education, Law and Order etc. are in the Concurrent List. Can anybody explain me, what a Concurrent List is? Is it anything to do with our Constitution? I can imagine that it has something to do with both State and Central Governments. I expect a detailed reply for this. Thanks in advance.
