Report No. 101
7.4. Unincorporated bodies.-
As regards entities such as registered societies, for whom corporate status does not exist in law1, the amendment recommended by us will not apply. We had, in our Working Paper, included unincorporated bodies and associations (with members who are Indian citizens) as entities to whom the right should be extended. However, we have now come to the conclusion that since they do not, strictly speaking, have a legal personality, they need not be covered by the article under consideration2.
