The Draft Constitution once submitted to the President of the Constituent Assembly was published and circulated among the public. Many comments, critiques, and suggestions were received, which were then scrutinized by a Special Committee of members of the Union Constitution Committee, Provincial Constitution Committee and the Union Powers Committee and the Drafting Committee itself. The Drafting Committee, taking into account comments, critiques and suggestions arising from different quarters, along with its own inputs, sat on the 23rd, 24th, 27th of March and 18th October of 1948 for discussions. On the 26th of October 1948, the Drafting Committee reprinted and resubmitted the version of the Draft Constitution that had been submitted on 21st of February, 1948, along with a set of amendments (appended to clauses it intended to amend).
