what is afspa

The Armed Forces Privileges Act-AFSPA (Special Powers) Act, 1958 was brought by the Parliament of India 64 years ago today. It gives the right to the security forces to arrest a person without a warrant and take certain other actions as well as to go to or search any premises without a warrant. This act gives certain powers to security forces to maintain public order in disturbed areas.

Under this, the armed forces can prohibit the gathering of 5 or more people in any such area. In such areas, the armed forces can use force on the person breaking the law after warning him. Can even shoot a bullet. There have also been allegations and counter allegations against the armed forces for the misuse of this law. For example, in the investigation of the CBI, after many encounters of the armed forces were found to be fake, controversies have also deepened on this.

This was also during the British rule

The Armed Forces Privileges Ordinance of 1942 was brought by the British colonial government on 15 August 1942 to suppress the Quit India Movement. On the same lines, in the year 1947, the Government of India introduced four ordinances- Bengal Disturbed Areas (Special Powers of Armed Forces) Ordinance, Assam Disturbed Areas (Special Powers of Armed Forces) Ordinance, East Bengal Disturbed Areas (Special Powers of Armed Forces) Ordinance, Joint The provinces promulgated the Disturbed Areas (Special Powers of the Armed Forces) Ordinance. After the partition in the year 1947, the government had brought this act in view of the threats to the internal security in the country. Article 355 of the Indian Constitution empowers the central government to protect every province from internal disturbances.

AFSPA’s scope reduced by 2022

The central government has reduced the scope of AFSPA in the northeastern states of Assam, Nagaland and Manipur after nearly 64 years in 2022. It went completely from 23 districts of Assam. At the same time, it has also been removed from 15 police stations in 6 districts of Manipur and 7 districts of Nagaland. The government has taken this step because of the stability and better security system in these areas. The government has also reduced the scope of AFSPA in Arunachal Pradesh, but it is still applicable there to some extent. Punjab and Chandigarh were freed from the purview of this law in 1997. It is also engaged in Jammu and Kashmir since 1990.
