State Law Commission headless since 2011
Ahmedabad: State Law Commission, set up with the purpose to review and suggest acts to aid better governance, appears to be in a state of disarray with the post of its chairman lying vacant since 2011. The Gujarat State Law Commission came into being in 1998 with the declared purpose to regularly review and suggest new acts for better governance, keeping in mind the changed social and economical scenario of the state. It became functional in 1999. In last 13 years of its functioning, the panel has given 58 reports, but since June 2005, when it gave its last report to amend the Bombay Police Act, the commission has not submitted any report to the state government.
