2. (1) Amendment of anti-corruption law in relation to certain pending trials. Notwithstanding- (a) the substitution of new provisions for sub-section (3) of section 5 of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1947 (2 of 1947). (hereinafter referred to as the 1947-Act) by section 6(2) (c) of the Anti-Corruption Laws (Amendment) Act, 1964 (40 of 1964). (hereinafter referred to as the 1964-Act) ; and (b) any judgment or order of any court, the said sub-section (3) as it stood immediately before the com- mencement of the 1964-Act, shall apply and shall be deemed always to have applied to and in relation to trials of offences punishable under sub-section (2) of section 5 of the 1947-Act pending before any court immediately before such commencement as if no such new provisions had been substituted for the said sub-section (3). (2) The accused person in any trial to and in relation to which sub-section (1) applies may, at the earliest opportunity available to him after the commencement of this Act, demand that the trial of the offence should proceed from the stage at which it was immediately before the commencement of the 1964-Act and on any such demand being made the court shall proceed with the trial from that stage. (3) For the removal of doubt it is hereby provided that any court- (i) before which an appeal or application for revision against any judgment, order or sentence passed or made in any trial to which sub-section (1) applies is pending immediately before the commencement of this Act, or 760 (ii) before which an appeal or application for revision against any judgment, order or sentence passed or made before the commencement of this Act in any such trial, is filed after such commencement, shall remand the case for trial in conformity with the provisions of this section.
Law making is supposed to reduce all kinds of corruption but law making in india simply increases all varieties of corruption when so judiciary in india should be completely away from executive and legislature is my considered thought.
all these law making is like your Finance Acts indeed neither it knows what it wants to make, most such acts do not have light at the end of the tunnel....in spite of about 70 finance acts are passed and modified tell me whether any one such act really did small meaningful work, at all..look back and tell pls law makers, please be honest.
better not make too many unnecessary amendments at the drop of a hat is my advice to all law makers please, true you as a class being egotistic it is indeed doubtful, as you as a class think you are the end of the world, but such attitude you nurture is indeed counter productive.
We will be updating this section with more ACTS soon!!
