Attempt to Suicide No Longer a Crime

    A person who survives a suicide attempt is punished with a one-year jail term and a fine under a rule in the Indian Penal Code that will now be scrapped on a recommendation from the Law Commission.
"Keeping in view the responses from the States/UTs, it has been decided to delete Section 309 of IPC from the Statute book," Minister of State for Home Affairs, Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary, said in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha.
A bill to clear the change has to be passed in the Rajya Sabha before it can be enforced.
The Law Commission has reportedly said attempting suicide is the "manifestation of a diseased condition of mind" that needs treatment and care rather than punishment.
