By January 31, 2021, all review meetings for the three laws that will be implemented throughout the Union territory will be finished, according to Amit Shah.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah announced on Friday that by December 2024, all Union territories in the nation will be prepared to put the three new criminal justice laws into effect, one day after Parliament approved them. He added that all evaluation sessions for the three laws’ implementation throughout the Union territory will be finished by January 31 of the next year.
“By December next year, the UTs of our nation will have all the necessary infrastructure, software, trained human resources, and completely computerised courts to readily implement the three newly passed criminal justice system laws,” Shah stated today. Later, the Union minister assessed how the administration of UT Chandigarh was running and assessed the infrastructure that was available to put the three laws into effect here.
The Rajya Sabha gave its approval on Thursday, while the Lok Sabha cleared the Bharatiya Nyaya (Second) Sanhita, the Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha (Second) Sanhita, and the Bharatiya Sakshya (Second) Bill on Wednesday.
The Indian Evidence Act of 1872, the Criminal Procedure Code of 1973, and the Indian Penal Code of 1860 will all be superseded by the three laws. Shah stated that the goal of the laws is to administer justice rather than to impose punishment during a reply to a debate in Parliament.
He stated that the three laws had been developed following extensive consultations and that, prior to presenting them to the House for approval, he had carefully reviewed each draft law, including every period and full stop.
