Later, it observed the existence of other rulers- Eastern Satraps, Gupta Kingdom, Gurjara-Pratihara, Vakataka, Kadamba, Chalukya Kingdom, Rashtrakuta Dynasty, Central Chalukya, and Yadava. Of all these, the most spoken about were the kings of the Marathas, who were later dethroned by the British during the Third Anglo-Maratha War. The presence of many distinctive dynasties remains reflecting through their archeological treasures, which are among the most popular places to visit in Maharashtra. Govt of Maharashtra has done allot to preserve these sights. At the same time, Maharashtra is home to some of India’s most developed cities, such as Mumbai, Pune, and so on. Maharastra is Vast, diverse, vivid, and incredibly lively. Maharashtra has something that is hard to find elsewhere in India when it comes to urbanization and accelerated growth. It’s a paradisiacal paradox-subtle but energetic, wild yet manicured, and fuelled by rapid urbanization.
Govt of Maharashtra:
The Government of Maharashtra is the Ministry of the State of Maharashtra in India. Maharashtra Gr falls under them. Govt of Maharashtra is an independent democracy of 288 MLAs independent of the legislature for a five-year term. Maharashtra has a bicameral legislature composed of two parts, the Vidhan Sabha (legislative assembly) and the Vidhan Parishad (legislative council).
This is the case in the legislative system; the cabinet is made up of a grouping, a coalition, or a group of members of the lower house who are in the majority. Lower House Majority Leader becomes Chief Minister and appoints cabinet ministers from both Houses. In the case that an un-elected official becomes Chief Minister, he or she will be elected to either house over the next six months.
