In the federation established by The Government of India Act of 1935, residuary powers were given to the Governor General. The Governor General had the authority to exercise these powers on behalf of the central or federal government. The residuary powers included matters that were not explicitly assigned to either the federal or provincial governments. These powers were retained at the central level to ensure the effective functioning of the federation and to address any legislative gaps or ambiguities.
