Union Cabinet has extended the term  Law Panel until August 2024.

The 22nd Law Commission of India’s term was extended until August 31, 2024, by the Union Cabinet on Wednesday.

The commission has been around since 1955. It is not required by law. Since then, it has been put together again and again to update the law, and it has given 277 reports so far. Up until February 20, this commission was in place.

“The Chairperson and Members of the Twenty-second Law Commission have just started their jobs. They have taken on several projects that need to be looked at and reported on. “The term has been extended because of this,” the government said in a statement.

The 22nd Law Commission will keep looking for laws that are no longer needed and will recommend that they be thrown out. It will suggest that new laws be made to put the guiding principles into action and reach the goals set out in the Constitution’s preamble.

The panel will think about and tell the government what it thinks about any issue related to the law and how it is run. It will think about any requests from foreign countries for research that are sent to it.

Rituraj Awasthi, who used to be the head of the Karnataka High Court, took over as the head of the panel on November 7 of last year.

This month, Union law minister Kiren Rijiju told Parliament that the government had no plans to implement a Uniform Civil Code (UCC), but that the 22nd Law Commission might look into issues related to it.

He said that the government asked the previous panel to look into issues related to UCC and make suggestions. “However, the 21st Law Commission’s work was done on August 31, 2018.”

The last law panel said that UCC “is neither needed nor wanted at this point.”
