Jurisdiction: India

Legislation/Statute/... The Public Records Act, 1993

Merely what the title states. I don't see anything mentioning explicitly whether it is the case. Is The Public Records Act, 1993 still in force? Has it been superseded/repealed?

1 Answer 1


I cannot find any record of it being superceded or repealed, so it appears to in force from the date shown at section 1:

(1) This Act may be called the Public Records Act, 1993.

(2) It shall come into force on such date1 as the Central Government may, by notification in the Official Gazette, appoint

11st March, 1995, vide notification No. S.O. 128(E), dated 1st March, 1995, see Gazette of India, Extraordinary, Part II, sec. 3(ii)

For completeness, the Gazette of India is searchable, but my reading of Hindi is not good enough to assist further.
