    The University Grants Commission (UGC) has asked Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) to promote awareness of the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita (BNS), which has replaced the Indian Penal Code. This initiative follows the Bharatiya Sakhaya (BS) replacing the Indian Evidence Act and the Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita (BNSS) replacing the Code of Criminal Procedure.

    There have been concerns and misunderstandings about the new laws, so HEIs are encouraged to hold seminars, discussions, debates, and other activities to clarify facts and dispel myths. The UGC wants faculty and students to understand the implications of the BNS for timely justice.

    The HEIs are expected to publicize the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, 2023, through various activities like displays, distributing flyers, organizing seminars, and inviting legal professionals to talk about the new laws. They are also asked to share details of their awareness campaigns with the Ministry of Education.

    The new criminal laws aim to protect individual rights and ensure efficient justice delivery. They provide measures to address concerns like police accountability, citizen accessibility to legal remedies, and protection of Fundamental Rights such as Free Speech and Peaceful Assembly.

    These laws were designed to remove British legacies in Indian legal system and focus on citizen-centric justice, especially for women and children. They introduce new offences like ‘Deshdroh’, terrorist acts, mob lynching, and organised crime, along with enhanced punishments for certain offences.

    The new laws also emphasize rehabilitation over punitive measures, with provisions for community service and time-bound prosecution of civil servants for misconduct. Stakeholders can discuss aspects like extended custody periods and gender-neutral provisions introduced in these laws.
