What you have uploaded is a copy of the Bill that was presented to Lok Sabha for passing. Usually after the Bill is passed by both houses of Parliament, it must get President's ascent. Finally it must be notified in the official gazzete for it "to come into force". If you read the Section 1(2) of the Bill it will become clear to you. Whether the Bill has been notified or not can be checked from

Its absolutely right. This bill has not come into effect as of now.


The bill is never made effective unless passed as Act by adopting due process. So, you will have to wait for another Gazette of India which will contain the Amenment Act after the bill is passed by both the houses and assented by the President of India. 


However, the courts are free to decide the existing cases based on the Supreme Court judgment dated 1st August, 2014, in the case of Dashrath Rupsingh Rathod versus State of Maharashtra and another (Criminal Appeal No. 2287 of 2009)

The amendment (main point about jurisdiction) is extremely badly worded...

Yes, you can. Ordinance is effective from 15.06.2015, but will be subject to assent by the President of India fter passing of the bill by both the house of the Parliament. There seems no hudle in passing of the bill.
