Nyaaya is building India’s first free online source of every central and state law. Information about these laws will be available in simple English, and will be organized so that you get the answer you are looking for with minimal effort. In the longer term, we also want to have content in Hindi and other regional languages to increase accessibility of the law.
nyaaya.in is building three sections:
a) A repository that aims to collate every law in force in India, in searchable, hyperlinked format,
b) An explainer with plain language versions of the law, explaining them in an easily understandable manner and
c) A moderated discussion forum for debate and deliberation on legal reform in India.
