Overview:

This third edition of B.M. Gandhi’s immensely popular Indian Penal Code provides a comprehensive study of the various offences under IPC. It is a well researched book on Indian Penal Code with a modern perspective and incorporates the latest thinking on the various aspects of criminal law.

Prof. Gandhi has thoroughly updated this work incorporating the latest changes in the law. All important judgments have been discussed and brought up to date till October 2009. In the treatment of the subject matter, the relevant sections on a particular topic have been grouped together and discussed in their fullness keeping in view the cognate provisions in other laws and of other countries. Indian & foreign case-law with necessary facts has been cited and discussed quite frequently in the book and also references to the opinions and views of other authors, both from India and abroad has been made. It also discusses the recommendations of the various law commissions and the committees suggesting changes in the existing law. The author has deliberated upon the present day emerging crime scene and taken pains to discuss some contentious issues of current day socio-economic crimes.

Additionally, the current edition contains extra information regarding Rights of the Accused and the Prisoner, the Arms and Explosives Act and a brief outline on Penology. Table of Indian Statutes, Regulations and Reports referred to in preparing this volume add further utility to this newly styled and meticulously organized edition. Further, an exhaustive subject index makes the reference easily.

The book will be immensely valuable to those preparing for the Civil Services, Judicial Services and is a must for the academic curriculum of LL.B. & LL.M. exams. The present edition serves as an ideal and handy referencer for law enforcement agencies, police officers, law teachers, researchers, scholars and practicing lawyers.

Reviews

  • Cochin University Law Review :
    A novel feature of the book, which qualitatively makes its identity distinct from other books on the Code is that it briefly discusses the concept of socio-economic crimes with a historical outline of their origin and their nature and scope; it also mentions about the nexus between politics and crime and provides a statistical estimate of crimes likely to be committed in India of the 21st century.
  • Central India Law Quarterly :
    It incorporates, though in brief, some new crimes like transsexualism, wife beating and domestic violence, and deals with them to the best advantage of the readers. The book can, for this reason, be said to be different from many others. The book can be claimed to be a rational combination of a textbook and lawyer's commentary and this feature has been rightly claimed as its novel feature. The book has merits of its own and deserves a place in all law libraries.
  • Criminal Law Journal :
    The subject matter is arranged chapter-wise as in I.P.C. text itself and the relevant sections scattered in the text relating to a particular topic are brought together topic-wise in one place and dealt with that topic in its entirety. This is the speciality of this book. The second novel feature of the book is that, while presenting a topic, its meaning, the principle involved, the object and scope, explanation of terms and exceptions and comments thereon are given. The distinctions between terms and various sections are explained. At the end of each section, punishment, practice and procedure are stated for easy reference. The author has also touched on the present day crimes of corruption.
