Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday released 12 reference books related to the recently enacted criminal justice laws and said the books have lucidly brought out changes made in the laws in a concise and simple manner. Hailing the publishers for the reference books on the three laws, Shah said the books also give case law commentaries for easy understanding. The three new laws -- the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, the Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita and the Bharatiya Sakshya Act -- got Parliament's approval last week and the president gave her assent on December 25.PT

The laws will replace the colonial era Indian Penal Code, the Code of Criminal Procedure and the Indian Evidence Act of 1872 respectively. "I congratulate Mohan Law House for publishing the reference books related to the newly promulgated revolutionary criminal justice laws in a record short time," Shah wrote on 'X'. He said these law books contain user-friendly comparative references for easy understanding of various provisions and also highlight changes brought in the new laws. The home minister said heinous crimes against women such as rape was covered under Section 375 of the IPC but is now in Section 63 of the new law. A grave crime like murder was under Section 300 of the IPC but is now covered under Section 101 in the new law.
