New Delhi, Aug. 27 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today set up a committee to identify obsolete laws within a time frame of three months.
He 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 ten to fifteen years. The newly-constituted Committee will examine all Acts recommended to be repealed by the Committee on Review of Administrative Laws, which had been appointed by the Union Government of Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 1998.
The committee will be chaired by Secretary in the Prime Minister’s Office, R Ramanujam, and former Secretary in the Legislative Department V.K. Bhasin, will be its other member.
The Committee will submit its report within three months, so that a comprehensive Bill can be introduced during the Winter Session of Parliament, based on its recommendations. (ANI)
