The Delimitation Commission in Jammu and Kashmir is likely to submit full and final report in the month end after getting more than 400 recommendations to its draft proposal.

Delimitation Commission when submitted its draft proposal on March 14, called for various suggestions and objections to its draft report. As per reports, Commission received nearly 400 objections and suggestions from March 14-21 after putting draft report in public domain followed by its two-day visit to both Jammu and Kashmir divisions on April 4 and 5. Now the commission is settling all the suggestions and objections and is on final stage of report. Commission is headed by Justice (Retired) Ranjana Prakash Desai and comprises Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sushil Chandra and State Election Commissioner (SEC) KK Sharma. The Panel has been assigned the task of delimitation of 90 Assembly constituencies in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

The objections/suggestions were given by major political parties, social organizations and individuals pertaining to both Parliamentary and Assembly constituencies.
The Delimitation could submit its final recommendations to the Union Law Ministry very soon, reportedly, as the Commission has deadline for submission of report till May 6. Assembly elections in J&K will be held after the Commission submits its final report followed by nearly four-month long exercise of summary revision of electoral rolls to be undertaken by the Election Commission.
