The Law Commission of India is an executive body formed by a GOI order. Its chief mandate is to bring about reforms in the legal domain in the country. The commission is chiefly composed of legal experts. The Law Commission is formed for a fixed term. It functions as an advisory body to the Law and Justice Ministry. The first ever Law Commission was created in 1834 via the 1833 Charter Act. There were three more law commissions during the British Raj before independence. Currently, the 21st Law Commission is in function and its tenure is from 2015 to 2018. Balbir Singh Chauhan, judge of the Supreme Court is the current chairman of the Law Commission. At present, one major concern before the commission is the amendment of the Indian Penal Code or the IPC.
