Centre introduces bills to replace Indian Penal Code, CrPC, Indian Evidence Act in Lok Sabha

Union Home Minister Amit Shah Friday introduced the Bharatiya Sanhita Suraksha Bill, 2023 in Lok Sabha to replace three "19th Century Laws", namely the Indian Penal Code, Code of Criminal Procedure and Indian Evidence Act.

Meanwhile, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman introduced the Integrated Goods and Service Tax (Amendment) Bill and Central Goods and Services Tax (Amendment) Bill in the Lower House. The contentious Bill proposes to levy a uniform 28 per cent tax on full face value for online gaming, casinos and horse racing.

Shah said that the bill will be sent to a Standing Committee. He added that it had been in the works for four years and that suggestions of all stakeholders have been taken into account while crafting it.

Weve gone through all suggestions. We will focus on citizens safety and bringing justice in a timely manner, he said.
