The two-member Adarsh Commission has received a seventh extension,with the state government granting it time till December to submit a final report.

The government said the extension was being granted as the commission of retired high court judge J A Patil and former state chief secretary P Subramanium had not been able to complete its report.

The commission was set up nearly 22 months ago in January 2011 to probe ownership of the Adarsh society land,reservation of the plot,town planning and coastal violations and the role of public servants.

It was expected to submit report within three months but started examining witnesses only in May 2011. So far,it has examined 40 witnesses,including bureaucrats and politicians such as former chief ministers the late Vilasrao Deshmukh,Ashok Chavan and Sushilkumar Shinde.
