    Former Chief Justice of India, UU Lalit, expressed his support for the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita-2023 (BNS-2023) during a seminar in Hyderabad.

Others at the seminar, including the Additional Solicitor General for Telangana and NALSAR Vice-Chancellor, also welcomed the new laws but emphasized the need for ongoing monitoring and feedback to ensure effective implementation.
