#DECRIMINALIZEDSUICIDE

How We Decriminalized Suicide in India to Impact More Than One Million Lives

As per NCRB data, at least 15 suicides take place every hour in India, which means over 1.30 lakh people ending their lives in a year. Number of suicide attempts are ten times higher than the total suicide deaths, which means about 14 lacs people attempt suicide in India every year. Under IPC Section 309, attempt to suicide was a criminal offense in India and the punishment included imprisonment upto one year or fine, or both. Mental Health Foundation (India) filed Public Interest Litigation (PIL) before the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi seeking to implement the 210th Report of the Law Commission of India and repeal Section 309 of the Indian Penal Code.
