Three Criminal Laws to come into effect from July 1

New Delhi, Feb 24 (UNI) The three criminal laws -- Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita, 2023; Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, 2023 and Bharatiya Sakshya Adhiniyam, 2023 will come into effect from July 1, 2024, a Home Ministry notification said on Saturday.
While issuing the notification, the government has put on hold the provisions of the entry relating to Section 106(2) of the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, 2023, in the First Schedule.
"In exercise of the powers conferred by sub-section (2) of section 1 of the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, 2023 (45 of 2023), the Central Government hereby appoints the 1st day of July, 2024 as the date on which the provisions of the said Sanhita, except the provision of sub-section (2) of section 106, shall come into force," the Home Ministry notification said.
It may be mentioned that the motors transport unions had protested raising objection to the Section 106(2) of Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, which provides a 10-year jail term in a hit-and-run case.
However, the government after a series of meetings had assured that a decision on implementing the section will only happen after discussion with All India Motor Transport Congress.
The three amended Bills that seek to repeal and replace the Criminal Laws were passed by the Parliament during the Winter Session in December, 2023.
