Retain sedition in IPC, make it tougher: Panel

The Law Commission of India has recommended that the country's 153-year-old colonial law on sedition be retained, but amended to bring clarity to its interpretation and usage. The non-bailable offence, which carries a maximum punishment of life imprisonment or up to three years in jail, is currently on hold due to a continuing interim order of the Supreme Court. Activists and jurists have alleged it is often misused to muzzle dissent. The Commission suggested amending Section 124A of the Indian Penal Code to align it with the Supreme Court's 1962 verdict in the Kedar Nath Case.
