Telangana Governor:Veto Powers and Power of Sending Messages

1. What is a Suspensive Veto?

A Suspensive Veto is the following: When the Governor uses a suspensive veto, the bill is returned to the legislature for repassage. If the legislature passes the bill again with or without amendments, and it is presented to the Governor, then the Governor is bound to give their assent.

2. What is a Pocket Veto?

A Pocket Veto is another type of veto power used by the Governor. In a pocket veto, the Governor does not explicitly reject or approve the bill passed by the state legislature. Instead, the Governor retains the bill without signing it.

3. What is an Absolute Veto?

An Absolute Veto is a straightforward veto power exercised by the Governor, where they reject a bill passed by the state legislature outright. The bill does not become law, and the legislature cannot override the Governor's decision. In an absolute veto, the Governor's refusal is final, and the bill does not take effect.
