That's one of the hallmarks of authoritarianism - centralized decision making, lack of any consultation. When the national lockdown was announced in 2020, it followed the textbook recipe of how demonetization was done in 2016. Both were thrust on the entire country without any kind of consultation - not with the bureaucracy, not the civil service, not the state governments - no one. This is monopolizing decisions and socializing losses. That's not federalism.
