Are you sure that the proposed amendment to the said laws have been enacted?

The fact is the said proposals have not been even passed by both the houses of parliament yet.

Yes.  I agree with the views of the above learned expert Sri T.Kalaiselvan Sir.

You have not discussed your problems especially pertaining to the new law or the lnew amendment to law being proposed to be enacted, hence there is no point in asking such questions here.

if my information is correct, it has been introduced in Lok Sabha on 11-8-2023 .

No, the newly amended Indian Penal Code (IPC), Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), and Evidence Act of 2023 have not yet come into force. While the bills were passed by both houses of Parliament in December 2023, they still require presidential assent to become law.expand_more As of today, February 24, 2024, the presidential assent has not been granted, and the old versions of these acts remain in effect.exclamation

Here's what we know about the current status: infinite craft

  • The three bills: The new acts are named Bharatiya Nyaya (Second) Sanhita (BNSS), Bharatiya Nagrik Suraksha (Second) Sanhita (BNSS), and Bharatiya Sakshya (Second) Bill.expand_more
  • Parliamentary approval: They were passed by both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha in December 2023.
  • Presidential assent: This is the final step, but it hasn't happened yet.exclamation
  • No specific date for implementation: Once the President gives assent, a notification will be issued specifying the date of implementation.exclamation

Therefore, it's important to rely on the current versions of the IPC, CrPC, and Evidence Act until the new ones come into effect.

I hope this clarifies the situation! If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.
