The CPDCC decided to increase the number of constitutional bodies to seven, giving constitutional status to the existing National Women´s Commission (NWC) and National Dalit Commission (NDC). The NWC and NDC were established in March, 2002 but neither of these have so far been given constitutional status. Myrepublica, September 28, 2014.
