What is criminal law?


Procedural laws prescribe procedure for the enforcement of rights and liabilities. Effect of substantive laws to a large extent depends on the quality of procedural laws. The governing law for Criminal Procedural Laws is the ‘Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973’.

“A procedural law is always sought in aid of justice, not in contradiction or to defeat the very object which is sought to be achieved. A procedural law is always subservient to the substantive law. Nothing can be given by a procedural law what is not sought to be given by a substantive law and nothing can be taken away by the procedural law what is given by the substantive law.” – SC in Saiyad Mohd Bakar v. Abdulhabib Hasan (1998) 4 SCC 343 at p. 349.

Some features of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973:


  • This act is applicable to whole of India except the state of Jammu & Kashmir
  • As per Section 6 of Code of Criminal Procedure 1973, Besides the Supreme Court, High Courts and the Courts constituted under any law, other than this Code, there shall be, in every State, the following classes of Criminal Courts, namely-
    • Courts of Session
    • Judicial Magistrate of the first class and, in any Metropolitan area, Metropolitan Magistrate
    • Judicial Magistrate of the second class
    • Executive Magistrates
  • Functionaries under the Code of Criminal Procedure 1973 are the Police, Prosecutors, Defence Counsels, and Prison Authorities and Correctional Services Personnel
  • Code of Criminal Procedure 1973 distinguishes recognises Cognizable & Non-Cognizable Offences-
    • Cognizable offences means offences for which, a police officer may, in accordance with the first schedule or under any other law for the time being in force, arrest without warrant.
    • Non-cognizable offences means offences for which, and ‘non-cognizable case’ means a case in which, a police officer has no authority to arrest without warrant.
  • As per the case of Lalita Kumari v. Govt. of UP, 2014, a police officer is bound to register an FIR relating to a cognizable offence.
  • Code of Criminal Procedure 1973 classifies all criminal cases into summons cases and warrant cases-
    • Warrants Case refers to a case relating to an offence punishable with death, imprisonment for life, or imprisonment for term exceeding two years
    • Summons Case refers to a case relating to an offence, and not being a warrant case
  • As per Section 304 of Code of Criminal Procedure 1973, there is a right to legal aid at the expense of the State.
  • The principle of Double Jeopardy is recognised in Section 300 of Code of Criminal Procedure 1973
