Report No. 148
Principles to be followed in Recommending Repeal
2.1. Broad approach.-
In our examination of the pre-1947 Central Acts with a view to considering the question of their retention or repeal, we have borne in mind the main objectives of statute law revision1 namely,-
(i) keeping the statute book in repair;
(ii) introduction of order and symmetry in the statute book;
(iii) providing easy access to legislation; and
(iv) maintaining and restoring harmony in the statute book.
