New Delhi : As soon as the clock strikes 12 midnight on June 30 in the country, the laws made by the British under the IPC will end. As soon as July 1 begins, three new criminal laws made in their place will come into force. These include the Indian Justice Code (BNS) 2023, the Indian Civil Security Code (BNSS) 2023 and the Indian Evidence Act (BSA) 2023. Since the new criminal laws have laid special emphasis on the use of technology in investigation, trial and court proceedings. Therefore, the NCRB has made 23 functional modifications in the existing Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System (CCTNS) application. So that even in the new system, there is no problem in doing all other work related to CCTNS including easily registering FIR from the computer.

Preparations had already begun on a large scale

The Union Home Ministry said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and guidance of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, the Home Ministry has started working on a large scale to make policemen, jail, prosecutors and judicial officers including forensic personnel aware immediately after the notification of the three new criminal laws on 25 December 2023. Apart from this, NCRB has also set up 36 help teams and call centers to help the states and union territories in implementing the new laws. So that if any state is facing any technical or any other problem related to the implementation of these new laws, it can be resolved immediately.

Three new apps named e-summons were also created

The National Informatics Centre (NIC) has also developed three new apps namely e-Saksha, Nyayasruti and e-Summons to facilitate videography and photography of crime scenes, court hearings and electronic service of court summons under the new laws. BPR&D organized 250 webinars and seminars to explain all aspects of these laws. In which 40 thousand 317 officers and employees were trained. Under the guidance of the Bureau, the states and union territories trained 5,84,174 employees. UGC made 1200 universities and 40 thousand colleges aware of these laws and the All India Technical Council made about nine thousand institutions aware of these laws so that teachers and students could know about these laws.
