Punchhi Commission Recommendations Upsc

Punchhi Commission

The Union Government constituted a commission in 2007, under the leadership of Justice Madan Mohan Punchhi, the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court 2007.

The commission also had three more members and a secretary and presented its report in 2010.

  • It recommended that the governors of the states must have fixed tenure and they should be removed only through an impeachment process akin to the President of India.
  • It wanted to introduce changes in Article 355 and 356, so that insurgency or problem afflicted areas or districts in a state rather than the entire state can be brought under emergency as a strategy to localize emergency and efficiently handle insurgency or troubles.
  • The commission also suggested that the union government must have power and authority for the suo-motu deployment of central forces without the consent of the concerned states in areas affected by communal violence.
