P S A Pillai’s Criminal Law is one of the most archetypal text on the Indian Penal Code, 1860, ever since the publication of its first edition in 1956. With a section wise content flow, this work adopts an entirely different approach to the study of the law of crime, focusing on both the emerging issues and the legislative as well as juristic developments. A leading treatise on the subject for over six decades, this work, is a thematic presentation of the complex and multi-dimensional subject of criminal law in a lucid, comprehensive and systematic manner. Primarily concerned with the substantive offences incorporated in the Indian Penal Code, this work also explains all relevant provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, and the Indian Evidence Act, 1872. 

Key Features:

• Chapters have been re-visited to tune their theoretical contours with the emerging ones.

• Traces the close inter relationship of provisions contained in the Indian Penal Code, the Code of Criminal Procedure, and the Indian Evidence Act

• Contains critical appraisal of judgments of the Indian Courts that have led to the change and development in the legal position

• Changes proposed by the Law Commission of India and other Committees are also highlighted and examined in the respective chapters to offer a holistic view
