The State Governments are competent to deal with such offences under the extant provisions of laws. 

However, the Ministry of Home Affairs has circulated the Model Poison Rules on 30.8.2013 to all States/UTs for notifying the same to regulate the sale of acid in respective State/UT. A comprehensive Advisory on taking steps to implement the provisions of IPC, expediting cases of Acid Attack, and to provide treatment and compensation to victims has been issued on 20th April, 2015. This advisory is available on www.mha.gov.in.
