A recurrent theme on this blog has been the criticism of Indian penal statutes for their unnecessarily complex language. In a country where English is at best a second language, these laws do no favours and only worsen a fear evoked by the sceptre of law.
It therefore makes me very happy to spread the word about a new organisation making a difference in this field and making Indian laws more accessible - Nyaaya. The beta version of their portal is now up and running at nyaaya.in and it looks fantastic. I urge everyone to check it out and give comments and feedback.
(Disclaimer: I was associated with helping formulate the Nyaaya guide to the criminal justice system and explaining some criminal statutes)
