PM Modi Calls for Seamless Law Transition; Inaugurates Supreme Court Diamond Jubilee Celebrations

During the diamond jubilee celebrations of the Supreme Court, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reiterated the need for easy access to justice for all Indian citizens. He said the Supreme Court plays a vital role in this and appealed to the top court for inclusion and capacity-building among all stakeholders for the smooth transition from the old to the new legal framework.

New Laws Introduced to Replace Colonial-Era Rules

Our sources tell us that the government has done away with colonial-era criminal laws and brought in new legislation like the Bhartiya Nagrik Suraksha Samhita, Bhartiya Nyaya Samhita, and Bhartiya Sakshya Adhiniyam. These, yet to be notified, laws will replace the Indian Penal Code, the Criminal Procedure Code, and the Indian Evidence Act. PM Modi says this marks the onset of a new era in India’s legal, policing, and investigative systems.

Capacity-building for Seamlessness

The Prime Minister emphasized that the transition from the old regime to the new one must be seamless. He also hailed the start of training and capacity-building programs for government officials that will aid in this transition. PM Modi further urged the Supreme Court to take an active role in capacity-building for all stakeholders.

Ease of Justice & the Role of the Supreme Court

The PM argues that the ease of living, doing business, travel, communication and justice are the nation’s top priorities, and the Supreme Court plays a critical role in delivering ease of justice. He complemented the top court for steadfastly striving to uphold the principles of equality and justice envisaged by the framers of the Indian Constitution.

Fostering a Robust Justice System

According to PM Modi, a robust justice system is instrumental in developing India’s future. He pointed towards the enactment of the Jan Vishwas Bill and the introduction of provisions for alternative dispute resolution as milestones in the evolution of a reliable legal structure.

Digitization of the Supreme Court & Other Tech Initiatives

During the event, our sources tell us that the PM launched three technology initiatives — Digital Supreme Court Reports (Digi SCR), Digital Courts 2.0, and a new website of the Supreme Court. All these efforts aim to make court proceedings more accessible to the public and to ease the legal process.

He spoke about the approval of the third phase of the e-Courts mission project focused on the digitization of court records and mentioned a significant increase in fund allocations for this phase.

Working Towards a Brighter Future
