The Adarsh Commission has finally finished its marathon two-year long hearing in the infamous housing scam.

The two-member commission comprising retired judge JA Patil and former chief secretary P Subramanian will compile their findings over the next two months and submit it to the state government by April.

The Adarsh Commission was set up in January 2011, three months after the scam hit headlines with 13 terms of reference.

Several politicians, bureaucrats and army personnel connived to grab apartments in this plush 31-storey Colaba building overlooking the defence area.

Top politicians like home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, former chief ministers Ashok Chavan, Shivajirao Nilengekar as well as late Vilasrao Deshmukh have all deposed before the commission.

The commission which was supposed to submit its report in three months has taken nine extensions till date.
