About the University

Introduction of the Book

With the changing world, the dimensions of crimes and laws relating to them have changed drastically. Criminal activity has largely transformed suggesting a reformulation of social values in the intervening decades. There is no dissent to the fact that the philosophical stance and fundamental principles of existing criminal law were the product of a particular time, culture and mindset, which has changed dramatically in the past few decades.

As a result of this, we have been pitched up against concepts underlying the laws that are either problematic or have become obsolete and therefore need to be amended for better applicability in the present.

There have also been instances where these laws have failed to provide remedies for the newly emerging category of crimes. However, in the face of such issues, we still need to abide by the idea that criminal law reform must not be guided by retribution and deterrence, but by reformation and rehabilitation that has been our firm stance all these years.

Strangely enough, the intelligentsia has in a way negated the need for reforms and we are still living with the colonial-era laws and codes. We need to understand that the present laws were framed when India was seen as a colony and was envisioned to be an ‘imperial despotism’ by Lord Macaulay. But the political scenario, as well as the administrative stance, are way different today and criminal reforms are needed to suit this new India.

This book will study the legal issues, regulations and their implications around the emergence of a new category of crimes over these years. The book tries to specifically explore the legal implications of these crimes in recent times and tries to put forth a clear road map aimed at proposing relevant reforms for the same.
