On July 1, new criminal laws that replace the IPC will go into force

The country’s criminal justice system will undergo a thorough revamp with the implementation of three recently passed laws, which are the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, the Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita, and the Bharatiya Sakshya Act, starting on July 1.

On December 21, the Parliament approved the three laws, and on December 25, President Droupadi Murmu granted her consent.

The Union Home Ministry sent three similar notices stating that the new laws’ provisions would take effect on July 1.

The Indian Evidence Act of 1872, the Code of Criminal Procedure, and the Indian Penal Code from the colonial period will all be replaced by these statutes.

The three laws provide definitions for numerous offenses and their associated penalties with the ultimate goal of revamping the nation’s criminal justice system.
