Committee to Identify Obsolete Laws within 3 Months
Aug 29, 2014

Prime Minister has approved the constitution of a Committee to carry out a review to identify obsolete laws. The newly-constituted Committee will examine all Acts recommended to be repealed by the Committee on Review of Administrative Laws, which had been appointed by the Union Government in 1998. The Prime Minister has expressed concern that out of the 1382 Acts recommended for repeal by that Committee, only 415 have been repealed so far. He has called for a focused and result-oriented exercise to systematically weed out archaic laws and rules. The Committee will also examine Acts and Rules which may have become obsolete within the last 10 to 15 years.

The Committee will be chaired by R. Ramanujam, Secretary PMO and V.K. Bhasin, former Secretary, Legislative Department, will be its other member. The Committee will submit its report within 3 months, so that a comprehensive Bill can be introduced in the Winter Session of Parliament, based on its recommendations.
