Description

The Collection of Material by the investigation, its processing through the machinery of judicial process till outcome in the shape of judgement and application of substantive law is regulated by procedure law. The procedural machinery has to move in such a way so that the constitutional rights of the accused are not violated. The procedural laws and the acts done thereunder to achieve the substantive law are subject to test with the constitution and rights granted under the Constitution. Coupled with this the problem of delay in disposal of cases has made the procedural law the main focus of legislature and the judiciary. This phase is more prominent after introduction of the concept of plea bargaining and hence many changes have been made in the Code thereafter. Writing a commentary on such a versatile subject and keeping it updated with the requirement of administration of criminal justice system is a meticulous task. Sarkar's commentary on the Code of Criminal Procedure has performed this task in most excellent manner since its first publication in 1956 till today. The commentary is lucid and exhaustive. Through successive editions it has acquired richness in content, quality and comprehensiveness. The revised edition is an analytical, critical and upto date study of the Code. Whenever any provision has been amended, inserted or substituted , the same has been incorporated in the commentary. All the important cases decided by the Supreme Court and various High Courts have been incorporated. The material has been added or deleted to fit more closely to the need of academia, lawyers, Judges and all those who are interested in the subject or concerned with administration of criminal justice system. Precise synopses with proper head notes are given almost under each section for quick and easy reference. I deeply acknowledge the valuable assistance provided by Dr. Sandeep Kumar, Assistant Professor, HP University, School of Law, Ava Lodge, Shimla om revising  this book. I also acknowledged my sincere thanks to  entire editorial teal of LexisNexis for their tireless efforts to bring the commentary in the present form.
