(Uttar Pradesh Control of Organized Crimes Act) which is an attempt to curb crime rate. The law passed will make sure that the convict will be jailed for 7 years with fine of 15 to 25 lakhs.It is brought into effect for illegal mining, cow smuggling, human trafficking, drug peddling.
3.Crack down on corruption: As of 2019, the Yogi led UP government acted against 600 corrupt officials forcing 200 of them to retire. It was first of such an action to crack down against corruption.
