The panel, headed by Justice (Retired) B J Sethna, was set up through a government notification issued on July 3, 2009, was disbanded in August last year after it failed to submit its report despite four extensions. It was scheduled to submit it by January 31, 2011.
While commission said it was not given enough time to submit the report, opposition Congress alleged that the delay was done by the ruling party in order to hide facts.
