This book is a unique work that presents over 2000 penal provisions from over 100 Indian Central Acts in 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, including the Companies Act, 1956, the Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981, and the Official Secrets Act, 1923. This updated edition includes all amendments till date affecting the Acts covered in this book, as well as relevant provisions of new enactments like the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012. The handbook is an indispensable first point of reference for practitioners, public prosecutors, investigation agencies, law departments, lawyers, and perhaps most importantly, the police.
