The bill, which has been effective in the state through promulgation, has been passed in the Legislative Council during the ongoing Monsoon session. It was passed in the Legislative Assembly on December 21, 2021.

Home Minister Araga Jnanendra on Wednesday tabled the Act in the assembly to be sent for the Governor's consent. Once the consent is given, which is just a formality now, it will be implemented across the state.

According to the new law, any converted person, his parents, brother, sister or any other person who is related to him by blood, marriage or adoption or in any form associated may lodge a complaint of such conversion which contravenes the provisions. The offence is non-bailable and cognizable.
