Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday asserted that the recently introduced criminal law Bills align with the principles of the Constitution and have been formulated keeping in mind the welfare of the people of the country.

Shah said that the new legislations will replace British-era laws that were aimed at protecting foreign rule.

“Under the leadership of Modiji, I have brought bills that lay emphasis on Indianess, the Indian Constitution and the well-being of the people. The laws are being changed in the spirit of Constitution,” he said while replying to the debate in Lok Sabha on the Bharatiya Nyaya (Second) Sanhita, 2023; the Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha (Second) Sanhita, 2023 and the Bharatiya Sakshya (Second) Bill, 2023.

The significant changes in criminal law Bills

Amit Shah said the Bills will encourage the use of technology in giving justice to people.  He  said “mob-lynching” had been included as an offence in the Bills.

He said in CrPC there were 484 sections, now there will be 531 sections.

“Changes have been made in 177 sections and 9 new sections have been added. 39 new sub-sections have been added. 44 new provisions have been added…,” said the Home Minister.

He said for poor, the biggest challenge to get justice is the financial challenge.

“…For years ‘Tareekh pe tareekh’ keep going. Police hold the judicial system responsible. The government holds the police and judiciary responsible. The police and judiciary hold the government responsible for the delay. Now, we have made many things clear in the new laws…,” said Shah.

Lok Sabha had on Tuesday taken up discussion on three bills to replace the Indian Penal Code of 1860, Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) of 1973 and Indian Evidence Act, of 1872.

Amit Shah introduced the three amended criminal law bills in Lok Sabha last week that will replace the IPC, CrPc and Indian Evidence Act.

The Home Minister withdrew the three bills, which were introduced in the Lok Sabha in the monsoon session of parliament.

He said that the bills had been withdrawn and three new bills introduced, as a few changes were to be made. He said the bills had been examined by the Standing Committee and instead of coming up with official amendments, it was decided to bring the bills again.

The Bharatiya Nyaya (Second) Sanhita 2023, Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha (Second) Sanhita 2023, and Bharatiya Sakshya (Second) Bill 2023 aim to replace the IPC, CrPC and the Evidence Act respectively.

The earlier bills were introduced in the lower House of Parliament on August 11 and were referred to the Standing Committee.

Replying to the debate, Shah said that bills had gone through wide consultations.
