Report of the States Reorganisation Commission 1955
21-May-14
The States Reorganisation Commission was a body constituted by the Central Government of India in 1953 to recommend the reorganisation of state boundaries along the linguistic lines. In 1955, after nearly 2 years of study, the Commission recommended that India's state boundaries should be reorganised to correspond more closely to the country's linguistic divisions, and proposed 16 states and 3 union territories. States Reorganisation Commission consisted of Faizal Ali, Kavalam Madhava Panikkar and H.N. Kunzru. Some of its recommendations were implemented in the States Reorganisation Act of 1956.
