The Code of Criminal Procedure (Amendment) Act, 2008

Read the Latest:   Code of Criminal Procedure (Amendment) Act, 2008 enforced


This blog post has MOVED to a new location. 

The Code of Criminal Procedure (Amendment) Bill, 2008 was originally introduced as Code of Criminal Procedure (Amendment) Bill, 2006. It was then referred to the Committee of Home Affairs, wherein the Committee recommended :

The Committee recommends to the Government to have a relook at the entire Bill in the light of its observations/ recommendations made in the previous paragraphs. The Committee in this context would like to reiterate its recommendations made in the One Hundred and Eleventh Report that Government should attempt to bring forward a comprehensive Bill for revamping the criminal justice system.

Based on this recommendation, The Code of Criminal Procedure (Amendment) Bill, 2008 was introduced in Rajya Sabha on 18th December, 2008 and received President’s assent on 7th January, 2009. It was published in the Gazette of India on 9th January, 2009.

Major highlight of the Act –  Power of police to Arrest stands restricted
Law must change with the needs of a changing society, and must in the process safeguard the interest of innocent as well. With a view to protect the dignity and liberty of its citizens, Indian Government has made some sweeping changes in the Powers conferred on Police to arrest an accused. The amendment clearly lays down conditions which need to be met before a person can be arrested. By doing so, the government has given credence to the most basic Right of its citizens – Right to Live with Dignity.

Salient features of the Act 

  1. The scope for the definition of victim has been amended so as to include the victim’s guardian or legal heir in the definition itself.
  2. Referring to amendment in Sec.24, now the court may permit the victim to engage an advocate of his choice to assist the prosecution under this sub-section.
  3. The proceedings for sexual offences are now required to be held, as far as practicable by a court presided over by a woman.
  4. Unrestricted and unlimited powers of Arrest so far enjoyed and exercised by the Police stand restricted and conditioned, both in case of cognizable as well as non-cognizable offences.
  5. New sections 41A, 41B, 41C have been introduced to provide for detailed mandatory procedure in matters of arrest under various circumstances and also to provide for control room in every district, state and police headquarters, etc. in order to display the names and addresses of persons arrested along with the details of the person making the arrest. Arrested person has also been given the Right to meet an Advocate of his choice during interrogation, though not throughout the interrogation.
  6. A number of safeguards in matters of arrest of a woman have been incorporated in the new proviso to Sec.46.
  7. Provisions have been incorporated in Sec.54, and new Sections 55A and 60A of the CrPC Act to provide further safeguards and mandatory provisions regarding examination of arrested persons by Medical Officers, and taking care of their health and safety and such allied matters.
  8. A new proviso to Sec. 157 provides important safeguards to victims of rape.
  9. Provisions have been incorporated in Sec.161 and 164 about use of audio-video electronic means while recording the statements of the accused. Analogous provisions have been incorporated in the new proviso added under Sec.275(1).
  10. Detention of the accused in custody and his production before the Magistrate are now regulated by new provisions and explanations inserted under Sec.167.
  11. Maintenance of the Case Diary by the Police Officer will now be regulated by the new sub-sections 1A and 1B to Section 172.
  12. A very important provision has been made in newly inserted sub-section 1A of Sec.173 wherein its is provided that the investigation in relation to rape of a child may be completed within 3 months from the date on which the information was recorded by the Officer incharge of the police station. If the offence relates to Sec.376, 376A, 376B, 376C and 376D of the IPC, the police officer has also to mention in the case papers whether the report of medical examination of the woman has been attached.
  13. Newly inserted Sec.195A entitles a witness or any other person to file a complaint in relation to an offence under Sec.195A of the Indian Penal Code.
  14. While conducting proceedings under Sec.242 of the CrPC, the Magistrate is now required to supply in advance to the accused, the statement of witnesses recorded by the police during investigation.
  15. Provisions have been incorporated under Sec.309 to regulate adjournment of proceedings on the request of either party for one reason or other. Simultaneously a time limit of 2 months from the date of commencement of examination of witnesses has been provided for completion of trial of offences under Sec.376 – 376D.
  16. Newly inserted Sec. 313(5) states that the court may take the help of prosecutor and defense counsel in preparing relevant questions, which are to be put to the accused and the court may permit filing of written statement under Sec.313 by the accused as sufficient compliance of the section.
  17. The provisions relating to compounding of offences under various sections of the Indian Penal Code have been rationalized in the newly substituted tables given under Sec.320.
  18. Substituted new sub-section 3 of Sec.320 CrPC now provides that when an offence is compoundable under this section the abetment or attempt to commit such offence or where the accused is liable under Sec.34 or Sec.149 of IPC, may be compounded in like manner.
  19. Relating to camera trial under Sec.327(2), a new proviso has been added to state that Camera trial shall be conducted as far as practicable by a woman judge or magistrate.
  20. Criminal proceedings against persons of unsound mind and lunatics are now regulated by amended Sec.328, 329 and newly substituted Sec.330. These give detailed procedures and safeguard proceedings against lunatics and persons of unsound mind.
  21. Newly inserted section 357A incorporates a newly introduced Victim Compenstion Scheme in order to alleviate the sufferings of the victim and to provide important safeguards to their Right.
  22. Amendment to Sec.372 provides that the victim shall have a Right to Appeal against any order passed by the court acquitting the accused or convicting for a lesser offence or imposing inadequate compensation.
  23. New Section 437A incorporates a very important provision to provide that before conclusion of trial or disposal of the appeal the court shall require the accused to execute bail bonds with surety to ensure his appearance before the higher court as and when required, and such bail bond may remain in force for 6 months.

Seminar – Code of Criminal Procedure (Amendment) Act, 2008 & Judicial Reforms

Read the Latest:   Code of Criminal Procedure (Amendment) Act, 2008 enforced


Click here to read the amendments as stipulated in CrPC Amendment Act, 2008.

The recently introduced amendments in The Code of Criminal Procedure have elicited mixed reactions. Though the Supreme Court says that these reforms would benefit the citizens greatly, the lawyer community feels otherwise.

To take this debate public, Rakshak Foundation is organizing a Seminar & Panel Discussion on :

Code of Criminal Procedure (Amendment) Act, 2008 & Judicial Reforms

Date, Time, Venue :

Saturday, 7th March, 2009  from 3:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Main Hall, Scope Convention Centre
Scope Complex, Lodi Road
New Delhi – 110 003

The Seminar would include lectures by legal luminaries, public views, and question & answer session.

Speakers & Panelists:

  • Mr. Shanti Bhushan, former Law Minister
  • Justice V.S. Malimath, former Chief Justice of Karnataka & Kerala High Courts
  • Justice Shiv Narayan Dhingra, Judge – Delhi High Court
  • Prof. (Dr.) N.R. Madhava Menon, former Director, National Judicial Academy, Bhopal
  • Mr. Ashish Gupta, IPS

This Seminar and Panel Discussion will provide a stage to discuss the Amendment and Judicial reforms in general – how these changes would help build our nation better and its passive effects that may occur in future. The seminar would provide a common platform for public views, questions & answers, as well as interaction with legal luminaries and senior police officials. This unique opportunity is for the benefit of public at large and is therefore free.

The Event finds basis in the fact that ‘Law is as much for the innocent as it is for the guilty’. The recently enacted ‘Code of Criminal Procedure Amendment Act, 2008’ is a case in point. Though the enactment has come as a boon to millions of Indians who can now safeguard their liberty and dignity from those who misuse law for ulterior motives, the country has witnessed strikes and agitations by lawyers who are vehemently protesting against the various provisions of the Act. With such extreme reactions to the fore, it is time to take this debate public.

Seminar Invitation:


Senior Citizens need Service with Care

6:30 AM  |  Delhi

I can’t see houses across the street today.  Visibility is quite poor. Actually, this part of Delhi fog-in-delhiusually experiences a thicker fog than the rest, for there are large open spaces due to proximity to the Airport.

The repeated thunderous roar in air is also missing. The last I heard of it was around midnight before sleep. Which means no take-off, no landing as yet. Passengers must be stranded at the airport. Nothing unusual though, for it happens every year. But for some of those who are stranded it could be rather unusual, to the extent painful as well. Which reminds me of an incident of winter 2003.

My 76 year old Bua (father’s sister) was to travel back to USA from Delhi. But 2-3 days before departure she was informed by the Airlines that instead of Delhi the flight would take-off from Mumbai. Reason cited was fog. Needless to say, the Airlines had arranged to transport passengers from Delhi to Mumbai.

But my Bua was in tears on hearing this. Fog had only added to her miseries. As it is she walks with great difficulty. Joint pains have made her legs bow-shaped and she has lost height as well (yes! thats what Osteoporosis can do). She was now worried about the wait time at Mumbai Airport.

For her, being at the Airport means being at the mercy of an attendant. Though it wasn’t the first time for her, but the sheer thought of having to undergo that twice – once at Delhi Airport and then at Mumbai – made her tense. A little less ability makes one helpless – it was writ large on her face.

As expected she had a tough time. She was stranded on a wheel chair in the lounge in Mumbai Airport with nobody to attend to her needs for long intervals of time. It was a gruelling journey and since then she vowed never to travel to Delhi in foggy winters. 

My thoughts came back to the currently stranded passengers in Delhi, specially the elderlies.

Service & Care
Maintaining service standards is a challenging task. But in times such as these (at Airports) it might not be easy for the service to stay impeccable all the time. Any extra rush of passengers would only worsen the situation. But then, despite this logic, we all know that elders need extra attention and care, just like children do.

Though children and elderlies should never travel alone, but if they have to, and are provided with an attendant by the Airlines, then its important that the attending staff not only wheel or accompany the person when needed but also understand their needs. This is what caring is all about.

Mere provision of a service does not mean that the attitude is caring. Care comes when the attendant is proactive. Its worth remembering, that service without care has no meaning.
