Needs to Reform IPC :-
Reforming the criminal justice system is not just a one step process . Revamping IPC is major step to modernize the criminal law of India and make it accordance with the Indian democracy . The Britishers used IPC to their advantage and to put away freedom fighters , it was based on the deterrent theory. But now shift has to be made from a deterrent to reformative system . Revamping IPC will ensure that the criminal justice system will become more reliable and have the potential to understand and answer behind today’s crimes. It will also ensure that certain provisions of this age code that are not relevant today . Are repealed. For example section 377 of IPC which criminalised homosexuality but discriminalised accordance with the changes in modern era.
