    Procedural law comprises the rules by which a court hears and determines what happens in a criminal case. The object, purpose, or design of all procedural law is to further the ends of justice and not to frustrate them by the introduction of endless technicalities. The Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) was enacted in 1973 and came into force on 1st April 1974.

It decides the nature of the case whether bailable or non bailable, cognizable or non-cognizable, compoundable or non-compoundable. Apart from that, it provides details relating to charges, punishments and duration of punishments in criminal offences. CrPC provides the machinery for the investigation of crime, apprehension of suspected criminals, collection of evidence, determination of guilt or innocence of the accused person and the determination of punishment of the guilty. At present, the Act contains 484 Sections, 2 Schedules and 56 Forms. The Sections are divided into 37 Chapters.
