UN Profile - India

Fundamentals:  India is a great country with an area of 3 287 320 square
kilometres.  According to the national census in 1981, her population was 685
million 180 000.  With a population increase rate of 2.1%, the population in
1989 is estimated at over 800 million.
  India is a continent of infinite variety where vast numbers of people of
different race, religion and dialects live together harmoniously.
  The basis of Indian Society lies in villages.  The 1981 national census shows
that 76.7% of the population live in farm villages and 70.6% of the labour
population engages in agriculture.  The social structure of India is based on
three concepts, i.e., the village community, joint family and caste system.
  India attained independence from the United Kingdom in 1947.  As for the
structure of the government, India is a federal nation with 22 states and 9
union territories.  The constitution stipulates the respective independence of
the legislature, the executive and the judicature.  India is a nation of
parliamentary democracy with the parliament consisting of two houses, Rajya
Sabha and Lok Sabha.  The president, the head of the nation, is elected through
indirect election by members of both houses and state assemblies.  The prime
minister who represents the executive branch is usually elected among the lower
house members.  The executive authority is divided into the federal government
and states.  The responsibility for crime prevention and the treatment of
offenders, including the administration of the police and prisons, belong to
state governments.  The federal government exercises jurisdiction over financial
and technical assistance, enactment of laws, information exchange, and training
of personnel and research.
Basis of criminal law and procedure
The basic substantive law is the Indian Penal Code, 1860 which stipulates
offences and punishments.  Major categories of offences prescribed are offences
against the state, offences by or relating to public servants, offences relating
to elections, offences against public justice, offences affecting public health,
safety and morals, offences affecting the human body, offences against property
and offences relating to documents.
  Juvenile is defined as a boy who has not attained the age of 16 years or a
girl who has not attained the age of 18 years.  A minimum age limit of criminal
responsibility is 7 years.  A boy of 16 years of age or over and under 21 years
of age, or a girl of 18 years of age or over and less than 21 years of age is
considered a youthful offender, and receives different treatment from an adult
offender.  The Juvenile Justice Act, 1986 was enacted for the protection,
adjudication, treatment and rehabilitation of neglected or delinquent juveniles.
  The main law on criminal procedure is the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973.
The Code classifies offences into two categories; cognizable offence and non-
cognizable offence.  For cognizable offences, the police officer may arrest the
offender without warrant.
  As for the investigation procedure, an arrested suspect must be forwarded by
the police to the nearest magistrate within 24 hours, by whom the legality of
arrest and necessity of detention is examined.  The magistrate may authorise
detention of the suspect in police custody for a term not exceeding 15 days.
The magistrate may also authorise pre-trial detention of a suspect in judicial
custody for a period not exceeding 90 days in respect of offences punishable
with death/life imprisonment or imprisonment for not less than 10 years and 60
days in respect of other offences.  The suspect can be released on bail at any
stage.  The police have the capacity to terminate a case by using their own
discretion.  In 1982, 174 642 cases were dismissed by the police without any
measures (The Third United Nations Survey).  On completion of investigation, the
police submit the charge sheet to the public prosecutor with reports and
documents.  The public prosecutor examines the case and sometimes gives advice
to the police on legal issues or sufficiency of evidence, but it is not binding.
The case is prosecuted in court by the public prosecutor.
  Regarding the courts system, the Supreme Court, with 17 justices, is the
highest judicial organ and has jurisdiction over the whole nation and whose
legal judgement is binding upon all the lower courts.  Each state has a high
court which is the highest court in the state and adjudicates appeals from
subordinate courts.  A state consists of several sessions which are also divided
into several districts.  In each session there is a session court and in each
district there are magistrate courts.
  The maintenance and development of prisons is a state subject and the state
governments have their own prison manuals.  Prisons are categorised as below:
central prisons; district gaols; state gaols for women; special gaols; open
gaols and sub-gaols.  Gaols having accommodation for more than 500 prisoners are
called central prisons.  Prisoners sentenced to imprisonment over 2 years are
detained in central prisons.  Prisoners sentenced to imprisonment up to 2 years
are confined in district gaols.  Special gaols are opened whenever necessary for
the confinement of such prisoners as the state government may order.  Sub-gaols
are for under trial prisoners.
Trends in the number of reported offences
According to the Third United Nations Survey, the number of crimes recorded in
the criminal (police) statistics are shown in Table 1.
  During the period, 1980 to 1983, the total number of recorded crimes in 1982
and 1983 showed an increase compared to those of 1980 and 1981.  The number of
violent offences such as intentional homicide, non-intentional homicide and rape
increased, while the number of property offences such as robbery, theft and
embezzlement showed a decline.

Disposal of persons arrested
According to the 1982 Indian statistics, published by the Bureau of Police
Research and Development, Ministry of Home Affairs, a total of 2 334 028 persons
were under custody or on bail during investigation stages in 1982.  The charge-
sheets were laid for 76.9% of the total persons under arrest and 14.6% of the
total remained under custody or on bail at the end of the year pending
completion of investigation.  The remaining 8.5% of the total were released by
the police or the magistrate before trial.
  The Indian statistics also shows that a total of 5 559 272 persons were under
trial during 1982 out of which the cases of 72.6% of the total persons under
trial remained pending at the end of the year.  The percentage of persons
convicted to the total persons in whose cases trials were completed during the
year 1982 was 42.4%.  This percentage was the highest under the crime head
`Thefts' (49.7) and the lowest under `Kidnapping and Abduction' (33.3).

2.5. Offenders Convicted
2.6. Sanctions - Background
General:  The Penal Code provides that punishments are classified as death,
imprisonment for life, imprisonment with or without labour, forfeiture of
property and fine.
  Capital punishment:  For example, the punishment provided for murder under the
Indian Penal Code is life imprisonment or death.  The current position in India
as interpreted by the Supreme Court is that the death sentence may be laid down,
but only in exceptional cases, the normal penalty being the lessor one.  In
addition, the Code of Criminal Procedure requires the court passing a sentence
of death to submit the proceedings to the High Court for confirmation of death
sentence, which can confirm the sentence of death or pass any other sentence
warranted by law.
  Imprisonment:  According to the publication Asia no Keijisihou (Criminal
Justice in Asia, Yuhikaku, 1988, pp 249-251), there are 1 054 prisons all over
India with the total authorised capacity of 183 616, while the total number of
inmates as on 30 June 1986 was 165 930.  This means that prisons are not
overcrowded as a whole.  Overcrowding exists, however, in some states and union
territories.  Prison overcrowding is most serious in Delhi where 3 914 prisoners
were incarcerated despite the authorised capacity of 1 823 making the
incarceration rate 215%.  As on 30 June 1986, 105 832 out of 165 930 inmates
(63.78%) all over India were remand prisoners under trial, which contributed to
the overcrowding in some areas.
  The following are counter measures to overcrowding considered to be effective:
the decrease in number of arrest by scrutinising the necessity of arrest
strictly; practical use of bail; swift investigation and disposal of cases;
speedy trial and expansion of prison facilities.
Alternatives to imprisonment
The suspension of sentence and release of offenders on probation has been
accepted as the most constructive alternative to imprisonment in India.
According to the Code of Criminal Procedure and the Probation of Offenders Act,
1958, the courts have been empowered to release on probation, in all suitable
cases, an offender found guilty of having committed an offence not punishable
with death or life imprisonment.  Where the sentence is up to seven years
imprisonment, the courts should firstly consider the desirability of release on
probation.  The courts, while releasing the offender, may pass a supervision
order directing that the offender remain under the supervision of a probation
officer for not less than a year and may impose certain conditions regarding
residence, abstention from intoxication, etc.  If the offender has failed to
observe any of the conditions, the court may sentence him/her for the original
  In India, about 13 000 persons are sentenced to imprisonment every year for a
period not exceeding six months and about 12 000 more for a period not exceeding
one year.  Thus, about 25 000 persons per annum can easily be released on
probation for good conduct and placed under the supervision of probation

2.8. Criminal Justice Personnel and resources - background
Due to the lack of data, resources in each segment of criminal justice, except
for police strength, is not clear.  According to Indian statistics, 1982, the
number of personnel in the whole country as of 31 December 1982 was 932 910.
There were 28.4 policemen per hundred square kilometres in the country.  The
number of policemen per ten thousand of population was 13.2 for the country as a
