· When a bill apart from cash bill is conferred before Governor for his assent, he either offers assent to the bill, withhold his assent to the bill or come back the bill for reconsideration of homes.
· If the bill is passed once more by state legislative assembly with or while not amendments, he needs to offer his assent or reserve the bill for thought of President.
· The Governor cannot send cash bill back for reconsideration as a result of the cash bill would typically be introduced with previous assent of Governor solely.
· In case the cash bill reserved for Presidents assent, the President needs to state whether or not hes giving assent or withholding his assent.
· The Constitution doesnt furnish any steerage to the Governor that during which matters he ought to accord his assent and during which matters he ought to withhold assent.

· When a bill lapsed a state legislative assembly is reserved by the governor for thought of the President, the President can:
· Give his assent to the bill, or Withhold his assent to the bill, or Direct the governor to come back the bill (if its not a cash bill) for reconsideration of the state legislative assembly.
