Delimitation panel likely to get 2 months extension

Srinagar, February 12 (KMS): The Delimitation Commission constituted by India to redraw the assembly constituencies in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir is likely to get a two-month extension to complete its task.

A Srinagar-based English Daily quoting sources reported that the term of the panel is coming to an end in early March and it would need more time to ready its final report.

The panel is headed by former Supreme Court judge Ranjana Prakash Desai, and Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra and the state election commissioner of Jammu and Kashmir are its ex-officio members.

In its draft report shared with its all five associated members from IIOJK, the delimitation panel has proposed an overhaul of assembly and Lok Sabha constituencies in the occupied territory.

The Commission has asked the associate members to give their inputs and objections to the draft in the coming days. Then they would be asked whether their objections, if any, should be printed before the next draft is put out in public domain. Once people share their inputs and objections, the panel would start working on the final report.
