Jammu and Kashmir is all set to implement three significant criminal laws starting today, aimed at modernising J&K’s legal framework and improving the efficiency of the judicial process.

The three criminal laws to be implemented in J&K include:

IPC Amendment Act

This law brings significant updates to the existing Indian Penal Code, aimed at addressing contemporary issues and streamlining the judicial process.

The amendments include stricter penalties for offences such as sexual harassment, cybercrime, and organised crime.

The law also introduces provisions to protect vulnerable populations and ensure faster trials for specific crimes.

CRPC Amendment Act

The amendments to the Criminal Procedure Code focus on enhancing the efficiency of criminal investigations and judicial proceedings.

Key changes include the introduction of digital evidence admissibility, mandatory video recording of witness testimonies, and stricter guidelines for the arrest and bail process.

These amendments are designed to reduce delays in the judicial process and ensure greater transparency and accountability in law enforcement.

The Indian Evidence Amendment Act

This law updates the Indian Evidence Act to incorporate modern forms of evidence, including electronic and digital formats.

The amendments aim to make the legal framework more robust and adaptable to technological advancements.

Key provisions include the acceptance of digital documents as primary evidence, guidelines for the authentication of electronic records, and measures to prevent the tampering of evidence.

These amendments mark a significant step towards modernising the legal system in J&K, ensuring better protection of citizens’ rights and more efficient judicial processes.

The authorities are hopeful that these changes will lead to a more just and transparent legal environment in the region.

A series of seminars were held across J&K for some time to raise awareness about these three newly implemented criminal laws.

Organised by the J&K administration in collaboration with local law enforcement agencies and legal experts, the seminars aimed to educate the public, law enforcement personnel, and legal professionals about the key changes and their implications.
