Uttarakhand Prepares for Implementation of New Criminal Laws Effective July 1


Uttarakhand is all set for the implementation of three new national criminal laws starting July 1. Preparations have been decentralized at the district level to ensure thorough training for all police personnel within the limited time frame.

Chief Secretary Radha Raturi announced that the state has completed its preparations for the enforcement of the Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita, Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, and the National Security Act. In a meeting with the Union Home Secretary, Raturi detailed the state’s coordinated efforts with the Central Detective Training Institute (CDTI) and the Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPRD) to train officers on the new legislation.

A team of 50 officers received master trainer training, who in turn are responsible for training other police personnel. The Uttarakhand Police have also developed a comprehensive handbook, simplifying the major aspects of the new laws, and distributed it to all employees. The training process includes three modules for online learning, ensuring that even personnel not directly involved in investigations receive adequate instruction.

To manage the tight schedule, the training has been decentralized to the district level, where investigation officers are being trained by master trainers and prosecution officers. Personnel have been given a month to complete their online training, with constables and head constables involved in the Chardham Yatra allotted 20 days due to their duties. The online portal includes 18 lecture modules followed by an examination.

Furthermore, all IPS officers and senior superintendents of police underwent a two-day training program at the National Law University. The state aims to complete all training sessions by June 20.
