In India, legislation is made by Parliament and State Legislatures. Laws made by Parliament are easily available in the public domain at various sites, including those maintained by the Law Ministry. However, laws enacted by the 30 state legislatures are not easily accessible. The Laws of India database, a project of PRS Legislative Research (www.prsindia.org), aims to make all these laws available to the public, free of charge.
In the first phase, the Laws of India database has laws from 10 states. Over the course of the next few months, laws from other states will be added.
