1. Efficiency:

A unitary government is efficient as com­pared to a federal one because it has uniformity of law and administration throughout the country.

The strength of the unitary govern­ment is best visible in the spheres of foreign policy and national de­fence, where uniform enforce­ment of law is most desirable and necessary. Such a government can act as single unit against the rest of the world.

2. National Unity:


A uni­tary government creates a favorable atmosphere for the develop­ment of national sentiments. There are no local interests as against national interests.

3. Less Expensive:

A unitary government is less expensive be­cause there is no duplication of governmental apparatus.
