India was reorganised on the basis of the States Reorganisation Committee report in 1956. But it was not able to prevent the demand for new states from coming up. The linguistic basis of reorganisation was not sufficient as new statehoods have been granted on other bases as well. With time it has become completely obsolete as a basis for reorganisation. As a result, there have been many new additions and manifold new demands for states in India. This paper attempts to analyze the basis of these new additions and to suggest a framework to comprehend and appreciate the process of reorganisation in a scientific way.
