What is meant by the Doctrine of Territorial Nexus?
Doctrine of territorial nexus deals with the division of powers between the state and its extraterritorial areas. As per Article 245 of the Constitution of India, the laws made by the state legislatures are not applicable outside the state. However, this can be invoked if,
- there is a territorial nexus between the Act's subject matter and the state making the law.
- Whether a particular state has an extra-territorial operation.
