Empowerment of the State

The Union made a rule,  (covered in union list) applicable to all the states on an issue concerning environment protection.

Can the state amend the same?

Is the state empowered  to do so?

No. State has no power to make a law or amend the lw made by the union on a matter in union list.

Yes state can amend, but it requires presidents assent.

I am not agree with Mr. Arvind.

Because, If the matter / issue falls in Concurrent List,  then he may be right.

But, in the instant case, it was clearly mentioned that the issue is in Union list. 

So, i hope, his views are may not be correct. 

Thus, this answer needs reconsideration by the professional as i am an infant in the feild of law

(i.e, student of law).
