Tamil Nadu CM Stalin forms committee to recommend amendments to be made at state level in three new criminal laws | India News – Times of India

CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu chief minister MK Stalin on Monday formed a one-man committee to study and recommend the amendments to be made at the state level in three criminal laws enacted by the Government of India.
The Committee will be headed by Justice M Satyanarayan (retired) to study and recommend the amendments, which will also include a change of the name of the laws in Hindi.
The one-member committee will submit its report within a month. It will also consult with advocate associations and other stakeholders.
In a post on X today, CM Stalin said, “They have implemented new criminal laws without hearing the views of the states and holding debates in Parliament, which has led to various protests across the country. The DMK and the Tamil Nadu government continue to oppose this. In a meeting of high officials held today, it was decided to amend these laws and a committee headed by retired Justice has been constituted for the purpose.”
The new criminal laws, Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita, and Bharatiya Sakshya Sanhita came into effect on July 1 midnight.
Meanwhile, Union Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal said on Thursday that the recent implementation of the new criminal laws will significantly enhance the quality of life for citizens of India.
The minister highlighted that these laws are poised to expedite the delivery of justice, thereby saving valuable time for all stakeholders involved in litigation.
The Union Minister stressed that this will prove highly productive for the nation as it will help in the process of developing society and eventually lead to higher progress.
The bills were passed in the Parliament during the Winter Session last year. Notably, over 140 MPs were suspended from the Parliament, a point Opposition has continuously targeted the Bharatiya Janata Party for.
These new laws aim to replace the Indian Penal Code of 1860, the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1973, and the Indian Evidence Act of 1872.
