During the visit, the Commission members will interact with political parties, public representatives, administration officials including District Election Officers and Deputy Commissioners of 20 districts of the Union Territory to gather first hand information and input concerning the on-going process of delimitation.
A decision in this regard was taken during the Commission’s meeting under the Chairpersonship of Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai and in the presence of Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra.
