complete system of positive law care-fully arranged and officially promulgated, a systematic collection or revision of laws, rules or regulations. As per Black's Law Dictionary, "Procedural Law" means the rules that prescribed the steps for having a right or duty judicially enforced, contrary to the law that defines the specific rights or duties themselves. "Criminal Procedure" means the rule governing the mechanism under which crimes  are  investigated, prosecuted  and punished.  It includes the protection of accused person's constitutional right, In British Rule  there  were  different  sets  of  provisions  whichgoverned procedure of Criminal Courts in Presidency-towns and the Provinces. In 1882, the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1882 (10 of 1882), was placed on the Statute Book. This enactment for the first time gave a uniform procedural law to the whole of India including both the Presidency towns and the Provinces. Subsequently the Criminal Procedure Code, 1898 (Act 5 of 1898), was enacted. The Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898 also has been repealed by the Parliament and newly enacted Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 (Act 2 of 1974), has come into force. While there were 562 Sections in 1898 Code there are only 484 Sections in the 1973 Code.The main thrust of bringing this new legislation was to separate judiciary from the executive in order, to achieve uniformity in the criminal justice, administration throughout India. This Code is a code of procedure and, like all procedural laws is designed to further the ends of justice and not to frustrate them by the introduction of endless technicalities. Though this commentary on the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 is concise one, but it is exhaustive on the subject. Every point has been dealt with. The synopsis of every section has been given below the section to make it easy for a reader to find out the topic which he want to read. For quick reference on any point an exhaustive subject-index is being given at the end of the book. Clarity, brevity and correctness have been main guides in the whole book.
