Description
The history of the Indian Penal Code prevailing in British India commences with the year 1833, the year followed the Reform Bill, a period which was full of law reform in general and criminal law in particular. Indirectly the Indian Penal Code owed its origin to Bentham the most well-known jurist of the day on the subject of law reform. James Mill the favourite disciple of Bentham had written the history of British India under the influence of Bentham's ideas. The Code reflects the thinking of these two jurists.
In 1933 Lord Macaulay moved in the House of Commons to codify the whole criminal law in India and bring about uniformity. Lord Macaulay while speaking on the Bill in the British Parliament said;
"I believe that no country ever stood so much in need of a Code as India, and I also believe that there never was a country in which the want might be so easily supplied, Our principle is simply this—uniformity when you can have it; diversity when you must have it; but in all cases certainty." Lord Macaulay also told the House of Commons that Mohmmedans were governed by the Koran and in the Bombay Presidency Hindus were governed by the institutes of Manu. Pandits and Kajis were consulted on point of law and in certain respects the decisions of the courts were arbitrary. Thus the year 1833 was a landmark in the history of codification in India. The Charter Act of 1833 introduced a single legislature for the whole of British India. The legislature was empowered to legislate for Hindus and Mohammedans alike as also for Presidency towns and Moffusil areas.
