 Description
Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 replaced the Code of Criminal Procedure Code, 1898. The 1898 Code applied to the whole of British India. However, the Code had to be read subject to the provisions of the Scheduled Districts Act, 1874 which contained a Schedule listing a number of backward areas to which the Governor General in Council would decide which enactments would apply and which will not. This ultimately changed with the passing of Government of India Act, 1935.
The 1898 Code came to be examined by the various Law Commissions which submitted a number of reports for example the 2nd volume of the 14th Report made number of suggestions. Mr. J.L. Kapur, the then Chairman of the Commission between 1963 and 1968, submitted 32nd, 33rd, 35th and 36th reports on problems arising out of or in connection with the working of the 1898 Code. 37th Report of the Law Commission made suggestions on Sections 1 to 176 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898. The 41st Report, Volume 1 under the Chairmanship of K. VK. Sunderam made a number of suggestions.
The present Code is based largely on the recommendations contained in the 41st Report. Some of the important changes incorporated in the Code are:
(a)  the preliminary inquiry which precedes the trial by a Court of Session, otherwise known as committal proceedings, is being abolished as it does not serve any useful purpose and has been the cause of considerable delay in the trial of offences;
(b)  provision is being made to enable adoption of the summons procedure for the trial of offences punishable with imprisonment up to two years instead of up to one year as at present; this would enable a larger number of cases being disposed of expe-ditiously;
