Question

Write about the ‘State Reorganisation Commission’.

Answer

The State Reorganisation Commission was formed by the Central Government of India in 1953 to reorganize state boundaries. The commission was led by Fazal Ali, K. M. Panikkar and H. N. Kunjur. After two years, in 1955, the commission suggested the formation of 16 dominions and 3 union territories by re-demarcating state boundaries. The recommendations of the commission were adopted in the States Reorganisation Act of 1956, which abolished the three-tier system of states and removed the institution of ‘Rajpramukh’ and special agreements with former Princely states.
