By Ians

New Delhi, Nov 24 The Centre for Civil Society (CCS) has proposed that November 26 should to be declared as the National Annual Repeal of Laws Day along with the Constitution Day of India, the society said on Thursday.


Currently, November 26 is observed as Constitution Day of India.

"The Constitution Day of India should be attributed as National Annual Repeal of Laws Day to repeal outdated laws," the CCS statement said.

It added that essence of good governance is good laws as the antiquated laws promote red tape and corruption.

The CCS representatives have officially written letter to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Minister of Law and Justice Ravi Shankar Prasad, Chief Justice of India Justice T.S. Thakur, Chairman of Law Commission Justice B.S. Chauhan and Vice Chairman of Niti Aayog, Arvind Panagariya in this regard, the statement said.

It has suggested that exercise of repealing laws should be conducted by all state governments and said: "A day in the Parliament and state legislatures should be dedicated and celebrated as 'National Annual Repeal of Laws Day'."

The CCS also appreciated the central government for weeding out about 1,175 obsolete laws in around two years.
