Law Commission of India is a government made executive body with the role of researching and advising the government about legal reforms in India. In its 279th Report, the Commission concluded, by upholding the sedition laws of India i.e. Section 124A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Instead of striking down the law, it gave certain recommendations to the government for its proper implementation, after observing the reasons as to why it was being asked to be repealed in the first place. It aimed to fix the alleged misuse and misapplication of the law, and answered the remark on these laws being outdated with respect to contemporary times. The paper deals in detail the analysis of this particular Report of the Law Commission by using a doctrinal method of research.
