New Delhi, Feb 24, 2024: The three new criminal laws, which will replace the country’s colonial-era penal code, will come into effect from July 1, the Ministry of Home Affairs announced in a notification on Saturday.

 

New criminal laws


The Bharatiya Nyaya (Second) Sanhita, Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha (Second) Sanhita, and the Bharatiya Sakshya (Second) Bill will replace the Indian Penal Code of 1860, Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) of 1973, and Indian Evidence Act, of 1872.

The Ministry of Home Affairs issued three notifications today regarding the date of commencement of these three laws.

According to Live Law, the Centre at the same time put on hold the implementation of Sub Section (2) of Section 106 of Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, the specific provision relates to ‘causing the death of a person by rash and negligent driving of a vehicle’.

The three new laws were cleared by the Parliament last year and President Droupadi Murmu gave her assent to those in December 2023.
