Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday asked states to submit inputs for the changes proposed to the Indian Penal Code, the Criminal Procedure Code and the Evidence Act, reported The Times of India.
“States should submit their inputs for the amendments by involving officials and experts,” he added.
Shah said that the Centre has started the exercise to amend the Indian Penal Code, the Criminal Procedure Code and the Evidence Act.
The home minister made the statement at the 29th southern zonal council meeting in Andhra Pradesh’s Tirupati city. These meetings enable states to sort out matters with other states or the Union government, according to The Indian Express.
In a tweet, Shah said that 40 of the 51 pending matters have been resolved in Sunday’s meeting.
“Zonal councils are advisory bodies in nature and yet we have been able to successfully solve many issues,” Shah tweeted. “The zonal councils provide an opportunity for interaction at the highest level amongst members.”
