Implementation of CAA, Uniform Civil Code, One Nation One Election: BJP unveils manifesto for 2024 General Election

The Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, which aims to replace the Indian Penal Code (IPC), also finds a mention in the BJP manifesto. The party has expressed its commitment to its effective implementation through training, online certificate courses, new curriculum in universities and law schools, and additional measures.

On August 11, 2023, the Central government had introduced three new bills to overhaul the criminal justice system in India.

The Bills were introduced as Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhitathe Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita and the Bharatiya Sakshya Bill before being referred to a parliamentary committee headed by Brij Lal for further examination. The committee submitted its report on November 10.

On December 11, instead of being amended as per the committee’s suggestions, the bills were withdrawn.

The following day, December 12, Home Minister Amit Shah reintroduced the latest iteration of the bills, insisting that they were withdrawn and reintroduced to save effort that would have gone towards passing separate amendments.

They were passed by the Lok Sabha on December 20 before being passed by the Rajya Sabha on December 21.

The Bills received the assent of the President of India in December 2023.

Thereafter, through a gazette notification on February 24, the Union Home Ministry announced that the new laws will come into force from July 1 this year.
