New Delhi: With the implementation of the new criminal law, FIRs are being registered under the sections of the new law. Let us know what changes will this bring in court proceedings?

Q: When will the trial begin in court?

Legal experts say that according to the new law, it may take one or two months for the trial to start in the court. The trial does not start immediately after the FIR, but there is a process for it, which has to be followed. Legal expert and Delhi High Court lawyer Naveen Sharma says, whenever a new FIR is registered, its copy reaches the records of the concerned magistrate's court the next day. That is, the copy of the criminal cases registered on July 1 will go to the magistrate court within 24 hours. According to the rule, after arrest in a criminal case, the accused has to be presented before the magistrate within 24 hours. After this, the police can request to remand or send the accused to jail.

Question: Will there be any change in the debate also?

Legal experts say that if an accused files a bail petition in an FIR registered under the new law, the court will debate on it under the new law and action will be taken accordingly. However, in cases registered before July 1, the bail debate will continue to be conducted according to the old law. Advocate Naveen Sharma says that he himself appeared in Rohini Court in an old case.

Question: What is the situation in the High Court and Supreme Court?

In a case filed on or after July 1, whether it is a bail case or a remand case, if an accused challenges the lower court's decision, then that case can be heard immediately in the High Court and the Supreme Court.
