Report No. 96
1.7. Need for repealing various Acts dealt with in the Report.-
However, notwithstanding the fact that this process has been undertaken periodically, there still survive on the Indian Statute Book certain Central Acts which need to be looked into from the point of view of the removal of dead wood from the statute book. The present study is an attempt to examine Central Acts from the above angle. Such an examination accords with one of the tasks of the Law Commission, namely, to revise Central Acts of general importance so as to simplify them, to remove anomalies, ambiguities and irregularities and to bring them up-to-date.
