Abstract: Let $ G$ be any finite group, $ G\to GL(V)$ be a representation of $ G$, where $ V$ is a finite-dimensional vector space over an algebraically closed field $ k$. Theorem. Assume that either $ char k = 0$ or $ char k = p > 0$ with $ p \nmid \vert G\vert$. Then the quotient variety $ \mathbb{P}(V)/G$ is projectively normal with respect to the line bundle $ \mathcal{L}$, where $ \mathcal{L}$ is the descent of $ \mathcal{O}(1)^{\otimes m}$ from $ \mathbb{P}(V)$ with $ m=\vert G\vert!$. This partially solves a question raised in the paper of Kannan, Pattanayak and Sardar [Proc. Amer. Math. Soc. 137 (2009), 863-867].
