Handbook on Offences and Punishments is a unique work that presents over 2000 penal provisions from over 100 Indian Central Acts in a tabular format. The table contains the updated text of relevant sections, the punishment under the statute, the trial court, and indicates whether the offences are cognizable or bailable. Where relevant, the table lists the persons who have the locus standi to file complaints under particular Acts.
This new edition includes all amendments till date affecting the Acts covered in this book, as well as relevant provisions of newly enacted statutes such as the Companies Act, 2013, the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012. Changes made by the recent Amending Acts such as the NDPS (Amendment) Act, 2014, the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013, the Prevention of Money-laundering (Amendment) Act, 2012 and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Amendment Act, 2012 have been incorporated at appropriate places in the book.
The Handbook is an indispensable first point of reference for practitioners, public prosecutors, investigation agencies, law departments, lawyers, and perhaps most importantly the police.
