Implementing Recommendations of a Commission is Prerogative of Govt.

The position of certain quarters seems to be that it is mandatory upon a government to implement recommendations of a commission.

This position is not tenable, because it would, then, amount to a transfer of powers of an elected government to a commission, which is not legitimately possible.

The decision of implementation, or otherwise, regarding any of the recommendations of a commission, it seems needless to say, is the prerogative of the government.

If this is not the case, an appointed commission would, in effect, be the government.
