When President's Rule is imposed in a state under Article 356, the powers of the state legislature are transferred to the Parliament. The President assumes direct control over the state's administration, and the Governor acts as the President's representative in the state. The state assembly may or may not be dissolved depending on the situation, and the President does not have the power to make laws relating to that state. Article 19, which guarantees certain fundamental rights, is not automatically suspended in that state.
