Indian Penal Code 1860 is the longest surviving code in the common law world which is nothing but a testimony of how well thought it would have been at the time of creation. The Code was enacted in 1860 and came into force on January 1, 1862. The Code is subdivided into 23 chapters which comprise 511 sections.

The code endeavours to cover all substantive aspects of criminal law. It is significant to mention that the Code has survived for over 160 years now without substantial amendments coming in. Although we do have a new bill in place to replace the Code i.e. Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita however this will take some time and more or less a number of provisions will remain same.

Indian Penal Code is considered as the backbone of criminal law in India.  There are numerous aspects of the Code which a law student and even a non-legal student must be aware of. These are some basic concepts and tenets of the criminal legal system in India.
