INDIAN KANOON SECTION 211 CrPC - Code of Criminal Procedure - Contents of charge


Description

  1. Every charge under this Code shall state the offence with which the accused is charged.
  2. If the law which creates the offence gives it any specific name, the offence may be described in the charge by that name only.
  3. If the law which creates the offence does not give it any specific name so much of the definition of the offence must be stated as to give the accused notice of the matter with which he is charged.
  4. The law and section of the law against which the offence is said to have been committed shall be mentioned in the charge.
  5. The fact that the charge is made is equivalent to a statement that every legal condition required by law to constitute the offence charged was fulfilled in the particular case.
  6. The charge shall be written in the language of the Court.
  7. If the accused, having been previously convicted of any offence, is liable, by reason of such previous conviction, to enhanced punishment, or to punishment of a different kind, for a subsequent offence, and it is intended to prove such previous conviction for the purpose of affecting the punishment which the Court may think fit to award for the subsequent offence, the fact date and place of the previous, conviction shall be stated in the charge; and if such statement has been omitted, the Court may add it at any time before sentence is passed.
