The three-member panel, appointed by the Supreme Court for the controversial farm laws, has submitted its report to the apex court in a sealed cover. The report will be revealed during the next hearing of the case, said the media reports.

“We submitted the report in a sealed envelope to the registrar of the court on March 19. It will be made public on the date of the next hearing of the PIL,” one of the members of the committee Anil Ghanwat told media. Ghanwat also heads a farm union and has advocated in favour of the laws. Also Read: Auto-debit facilities for bill payments, subscription renewals no longer available from April 1

Earlier in January, the Supreme Court appointed a four-member committee of experts “to listen to the grievances of the farmers on the farm laws and the views of the government and make recommendations”.

One of the member, however, left the panel while remaining three consulted nearly 85 farmer organisations on the disputed farm laws. The committee had also sought comments, views, and suggestions of the public through a public notice published in major newspapers, the report added.
