"These laws have become redundant over a period of time," the minister said, adding that work on seeking no objections from departments concerned had begun.

"About 1,000 laws that have lost their worth are under active consideration. The government will be bringing a legislation, most likely in the coming Assembly session, to abolish them," Pathak told IANS.
