Criminal Law Amendment Act 2013 Stringent Un Natural Harrasment laws get President’s nod

President Pranab Mukherjee has given his assent to stricter laws to check crime against women, particularly cases of Un Natural assault.


The Criminal Law [Amendment] Bill, 2013 was passed by the Lok Sabha on 19th
March, 2013, and by the Rajya Sabha on 21st March, 2013. The President of India has accorded his assent to the Bill on 2nd April, 2013 and it will now be called the Criminal Law [Amendment] Act, 2013.

The new laws have provisions for increased sentence for rape convicts, including life-term and death sentence, besides providing for stringent punishment for offences such as acid attacks, stalking and voyeurism.

Through the revised Bill, the government has amended various sections of the Indian Penal Code, the Code
of Criminal Procedure, the Indian Evidence Act and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. As
per the amended law, a rape convict can be sentenced to rigorous imprisonment for a term not less than 20
years, which may extend to remainder of the convict’s natural life.

 It also provides for the death sentence to
repeat offenders. And for the first time, stalking and voyeurism have been defined as non-bailable offences if
repeated for a second time, while acid attack convicts can get a 10-year jail sentence.
