The features of the proposed Union of India by the Cabinet plan was / were:
1. Weak Centre with limited powers
2. Residuary powers vested in the Centre
3. India’s right to cede from the Commonwealth
4. All the members of the Interim cabinet would be Indians
Choose the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [B] Only 1, 3 & 4

The Union Government and its legislature were to have limited powers, dealing with Finance, Foreign Affairs and Communications. The union would have  powers necessary to raise the finances to manage the subjects. Thus, the Cabinet Mission plan proposed a weak Centre. We can realize what would  have been of the country if this plan was approved and implemented. All subjects other than the Union Subjects and all the residuary powers would be  vested in the provinces.  The Princely states would retain all subjects and all residuary powers.
