New Delhi, Aug 24 : A brand new office for the Delimitation Commission was thrown open by Justice Ranjana Desai, the Chairperson of the Commission on Monday.
Sunil Arora, the Chief Election Commissioner, along with the two commissioners — Ashok Lavasa and Sushil Chandra were also present. This office, which is located on the third Floor of Hotel Ashoka, has requisite spaces, including a Conference Hall with video conferencing facilities.
The Delimitation Commission has already started functioning since March 2020. It has held four formal meetings so far. All associate members have already been nominated for each State and Union Territory concerned. However, the Election Commission statement did not mention which states and UTs were nominated for the delimitation purpose.
Meanwhile, the commission has kept June 15 this year as the date for freezing of administrative districts in these States or UTs. Data collection work has also been completed for the purpose.
Now with this new office, formal deliberations with associate members are expected to start soon to expedite the process for which it came to being — delimitation.
