two weeks of such appearance of the factors and reasons for such  denial
of  parole.  Such reasons shall be given in detail and not in conclusory
terms. The board shall specify a date not more than  twenty-four  months
from  such  determination  for reconsideration, and the procedures to be
followed upon reconsideration shall be the same, PROVIDED  HOWEVER  THAT

BOARD SHALL SPECIFY A DATE NOT MORE THAN SIXTY MONTHS FROM SUCH DETERMI-
NATION FOR RECONSIDERATION, AND  THE  PROCEDURES  TO  BE  FOLLOWED  UPON

view  an  inmate serving an indeterminate sentence and determine whether
he OR SHE should be paroled at the expiration of the minimum  period  or
periods  in  accordance with the procedures adopted pursuant to subdivi-
sion four of section two hundred fifty-nine-c. If parole is not  granted
upon  such  review,  the  inmate shall be informed in writing within two
weeks of such appearance of the factors and reasons for such  denial  of
parole.  Such  reasons  shall  be  given in detail and not in conclusory
terms. The board shall specify a date not more than  twenty-four  months
from  such  determination  for reconsideration, and the procedures to be
followed upon reconsideration shall be the same, PROVIDED  HOWEVER  THAT
