Comments Received on The working Paper
9.1. Comments received-a general description.-
Having dealt with the legal position in India and elsewhere, we now turn to the opinion on the subject. A Working Paper prepared on the subject by the Commission was circulated in February 1983 for comments to interested persons and bodies, including the Secretary, Legislative Department, Ministry of Law, all High Courts, all State Governments and Bar Associations. A request was made to forward comments by the 15th April, 1983. The Commission has before finalising its views, taken into account all comments received upto the 15th September, 1983.
Replies have been received from three High Courts, four States Governments, two Registrars of High Courts (personal views), one Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate and one lady advocate. We are grateful to all of them for having responded to the Questionnaire. We shall presently deal with some of the important points made in the comments.
