Report No. 63
3.5. Recommendation as to extent clause in section 1.-
Hence, there should be no constitutional difficulty in the way of recommending the extension of the Act to the whole of India1. The advantage of uniformity that will be gained by such an amendment is obvious. We, therefore, recommend that an extent clause should be inserted in the Act for the purpose, as follows:-
"It extends to the whole of India except the State of Jammu and Kashmir."
