(iii)                The procedure followed in the decision making process, including channel of supervision and accountability :

       The Ministry of Law & Justice may assign to the Commission from time to time any subject relating to Law and Judicial administration.  The Commission also takes up any such subject suo- moto under the Terms of Reference.  The projects undertaken by the Commission are initiated in the Commission’s meetings which take place frequently. Priorities are discussed, topics are identified and preparatory work is assigned to each member of the Commission. Depending upon the nature and scope of the topic, different methodologies for collection of data and research are adopted keeping the scope of the proposal for reform in mind.

Discussion at Commission meetings during this period helps not only in articulating the issues and focusing the research, but also evolving a consensus among Members of the Commission. What emerges out of this preparatory work in the Commission is usually a working paper outlining the problem and suggesting matters deserving reform. The paper is then sent out for circulation in the public and concerned interest groups with a view to eliciting reactions and suggestions. Usually a carefully prepared questionnaire is also sent with the document.

The Law Commission has been anxious to ensure that the widest section of people is consulted in formulating proposals for law reforms. In this process, partnerships are established with professional bodies and academic institutions. Seminars and workshops are organised in different parts of the country to elicit critical opinion on proposed strategies for reform.

Once the data and informed views are assembled, the Commission’s staff evaluates them and organizes the information for appropriate introduction in the Report which is written either by the Member-Secretary or one of the Members or the Chairman of the Commission. It is then subjected to close scrutiny by the full Commission in   meetings. Once the Report and summary are finalised, the Commission may decide to prepare a draft amendment or a new bill which may be appended to its Report. Thereafter, the final Report is forwarded to the Government.

Since the establishment of the First Law Commission of Independent India, it and the subsequent Law Commissions have so far submitted 234 Reports on various issues.

        The Reports of the Law Commission are considered by the Ministry of Law & Justice, in consultation with the concerned administrative Ministries and are submitted to Parliament from time to time. They are cited in Courts, in academic and public discussions and are acted upon by concerned Government Ministries/Departments depending on the Government’s recommendations.

                In so far as the administrative side of the Commission’s operations is concerned, cases/receipts are put up by the concerned dealing hands to the Section Officer.  The Section Officer submits the files to the Under Secretary, who in turn submits the files to the Joint Secretary and Law Officer, who is the Head of the Office.  The Joint Secretary & Law Officer submits files of important nature to the Member-Secretary.
