Statement of Objects and Reasons appended to the Constitution (Sixty-third Amendment) Bill, 1989 which was enacted as THE CONSTITUTION (Sixty-third Amendment) Act, 1990


The Constitution (Fifty-ninth Amendment) Act, 1988 was passed in March, 1988, making certain changes in regard to making a Proclamation of Emergency in Punjab and to the duration of President's rule in that State.

2. On reconsideration, the Government is of the view that there is no need for the special powers in regard to the Proclamation of Emergency in Punjab as envisaged in the amendment. It is also considered that the amendment to article 356 made by the said Act is no longer needed. It is, therefore, considered that the amendments made by the aforesaid Act should be repealed.

3. As regards President's Proclamation issued on 11-5-1987 under clause (1) of article 356 of the Constitution, this has been approved by both the Houses of Parliament in October, 1989.

4. The Bill seeks to achieve the above objects.
