Report No. 44
3. Reference to the Commission after lapse of the Bill.-
The Bill introduced in the Rajya Sabha was passed by it in August 1970; but, because the Lok Sabha was dissolved before it could consider it, the Bill lapsed. We were subsequently asked by the Law Ministry whether we would make a firm recommendation for the deletion of clauses (a) and (b) of Article 133, and took up this question for a closer and detailed study.
