New Delhi : From July 1, three new laws will be implemented in the country. Along with this, the popular legends of IPC in common parlance will also change. For example, on hearing the name '420', everyone, young or old, understood its meaning. Many films and stories related to 420 will also become a thing of the past. Comments like 'I am getting four hundred BC' will now become old. Because now instead of IPC 420, there will be BNS 316. That means now you will be able to say that he has made it 'three hundred sixteen'. That means the stains of IPC 420, which has been tainted for dishonesty since the British era, will be washed away, now BNS '316' will become 'infamous' for fraud.

Three new laws will come into force from July 1

The new law provides protection to doctors from harsh punishment. For example, BNS 106 (1) states that a registered doctor (RMP) will be punished with imprisonment up to two years and fine for medical negligence. It states that the BNS provides for lesser punishment for doctors who cause death due to haste or negligence while performing any medical procedure. Along with this, according to Section 51 (1) of the BNS, the doctor has to send the examination report of the accused to the IO without any delay. The registered doctor has to send the report of the medical examination of the rape victim to the investigating officer within seven days.
