Three New Criminal Laws Come Into Force

The three New Criminal Laws – Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, 2023, Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita, 2023 and Bharatiya Sakshya Adhiniyam, 2023, come into force today.

The government of India has held regular meetings with States and Union Territories and they are fully geared up in terms of technology, capacity building and awareness generation to implement the new Criminal Laws.

As the new Criminal Laws laid emphasis on technology in investigation, trial and court proceedings, National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) has made 23 functional modifications in the existing Crime and Criminal Tracking Networks and Systems (CCTNS) application. It is also providing technical assistance to the States and UTs for seamless transition to the new system.

To implement the new Criminal Laws, training of the Police and investigating authorities have been done for a smooth transition into the system. Discussions and in-depth analysis have been covered through news bulletins, programs, discussions and social media platforms of Doordarshan and Akashvani.

Public Awareness flyers, interaction programs, informational websites, and ministerial-level webinars have also been held. Additionally, Mandatory inclusion of course modules in schools and higher education institutes are also one of the steps taken.
