A delegation of the Select Committee visited Mumbai, Hyderabad and Delhi to see the functioning of the Police Commissionerates and after 4 sittings, submitted their report on 21st October, 2003 recommending some changes in the Bill. 
After a marathon over night session which continued uninterrupted for nearly 16 hours on 10/11.11.03, the Odisha Legislative Assembly passed the Bill which was then sent to His Excellency the Governor of Odisha for assent.The Bill thereafter was sent to Government of India for the assent of His Excellency the President of India. Various information and clarifications sought by the Ministry of Home Affairs were submitted by the State Government. Finally, the Bill received the assent of the President of India on 24.9.07 and became an Act.
