Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs (CCPA)
CCPA primarily deals with problems relating to Centre-State relations in the context of the Federal structure of the country and Constitutional provisions.
However, CCPA also considers economic and political issues that have to be judged “with a wider perspective”. It is in this background that economic issues with political implications sometimes get discussed in the CCPA and not in the CCEA.
CCPA is enjoined to deal with policy matters concerning foreign affairs that do not have external or internal security implications, as matters with such implications are required to be dealt with by the CCS.
