In order for the substantive laws to come into operation. Additionally. it also deals with public nuisance. procedural law is imperative. apprehension of suspected criminals. The Sections are divided into 37 Chapters. So. procedural and substantive laws are supplementary to each other. The substantive laws like IPC need a mechanism to be implemented and this mechanism was created and named as the criminal procedure code. 1983. prevention of offences and maintenance of wife. determination of guilt or innocence of the accused person and the determination of punishment of the guilty. collection of evidence.

. 1973. Any claim under the code will lie only after the code came in existence i.e.The code is consolidating and amending. then that law would be given precedence over it. It is deemed to be exhaustive but if any subject is not mentioned in the CrPC then the court is empowered to frame laws on the same. It mentions the procedure of applying substantive law but in case any special law already exists where the procedure for such law is already mentioned.

Anyone who knows about the commission of an offence. It is only after the FIR is registered in the police station that the police take up investigation of the case. but anyone can make such a report either orally or in writing to the police. .FIRST INFORMATION REPORT A First Information Report (FIR) is a written document prepared by police organizations in India. it is generally a complaint lodged with the police by the victim of a cognizable offense or by someone on his or her behalf. When they receive information about the commission of an offence. including police officers. can file an FIR. FIR is an important document because it sets the process of criminal justice in motion.

A police station is the first reporting stage. The State Crime Records Bureau compiles information for all the Districts in the State and passes it to the National Crime Records Bureau.CRIME STATISTICS IN INDIA The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) in the Ministry of Home Affairs is the nodal agency at the Centre to collect.

theft is the taking of another person's property without that person's permission or consent with the intent to deprive the rightful owner of it. .100 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 Accident Stolen\Theft Gambling Cheating Murder OBSERVATIONS From the data we collected. And from my point of view there are various reasons behind the high rate of thefts and some of them are: UNEMPLOYMENT: due to unemployment many people are pushed to take drastic steps to fulfill their basic needs. also even if one is caught during theft the quantum of punishment is very small as compare to other crimes. THEFT was the major crime which was committed the most in the year 2015-16 and even currently in 2016 In common usage. it can be observed that in the city Rupnagar.

 ILLITERACY : unemployment combined with illiteracy leaves a small amount of option for an illiterate person to earn his livelihood.  CORRUPTION & BUREAUCRACY: a system with bureaucracy and corruptions leads to an ineffective law and order system. police personnel might not try to catch a criminal if he knows the criminal can easily escape justice using the loopholes of corruption and bureaucracy. 51% of crimes are committed under the influence of alcohol and other drugs. therefore he/she resorts to such a crime  LACK OF POLICE PERSONNEL: in Rupnagar the amount of police personnel is less as compared to the population of the city. the Police personnel should be provided with proper facilities required for their work which should include proper salary to advanced equipments. due to monetary problems and addiction many youths/addicts commit thefts. Measures which have to be taken: Reduce alcohol and drug abuse. just to make money enough to buy more drugs/alcohol. .  ALCOHOL & DRUGS: consumption of alcohol and drugs is very high in Rupnagar neighboring areas.  LACK OF FACILITIES FOR POLICE: I think in order to establish a good Police Force.

 Improve assessment and interventions for youth. and who are in work.  The punishment for murder varies from life imprisonment to death with fine. are less likely to offend. which makes many people think twice before doing such an act. If we compare the data of 2015 and complete the data of 2016 on pro-rata basis then we can see that there is decline in the rate of crimes being committed in Rupnagar and other areas which .  Focus on education and literacy of people because people who have education and training.  Strengthen rehabilitation and re-integration services to prepare and support people to live law-abiding lives. some reasons for it are:  It a very serious crime and people are scared to do such an act.  Wider Government Initiatives Murder remains the least committed crime in 2015 as well as currently in 2016.  A murder crime gets more attention from the police as well as people and media.

through various Govt.come under the jurisdiction of Rupnagar Police Station. . better perks and increase in salaries of police personnel has also increased the efficiency of police work  Various employment schemes of govt. are also helping people to get jobs.  Better and new techniques of police training are also a reason for such a decrease in crime rate. thus decreasing many drug related crimes. Such a decline in crime rate could be because of several of reasons and some of them according to me are:  Increase in literacy.  New equipment.  Increased literacy has reduced the alcohol and drug abuse among people. schemes and programmes the literacy rate is increasing all over India.
