The South District of the Delhi Police has initiated a comprehensive training program to equip its personnel with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement three new pivotal laws—Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita (BNS), Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita (BNSS), and Bharatiya Sakshya Adhiniyam (BSA). These new laws will replace the existing Indian Penal Code (IPC), Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC), and Indian Evidence Act (IEA) from July 1st, 2024.
According to DCP South District, Ankit Chauhan, to date, approximately 1,100 police personnel in the South District have completed this intensive training. The program is designed to ensure that every officer is thoroughly versed in the new legal framework and ready to apply it in their daily operations. Each session concludes with a written test to evaluate the officers’ understanding and readiness.
The training begins with an introduction to the new laws, providing context and outlining their primary objectives.

This segment highlights the significant changes and enhancements over the previous IPC, CrPC, and IEA, ensuring that the officers understand the rationale behind the new legal framework. “The Delhi Police is committed to the continuous professional development of its officers. This comprehensive training program is crucial in ensuring that our personnel are well-prepared to enforce the new laws effectively”, added Chauhan.
The training program also includes practical applications of the new laws, with scenarios and case studies to help officers understand how to implement them in real-life situations. The sessions are designed to be interactive, encouraging officers to ask questions and engage in discussions about the new legal framework.
