Explanatory Notes:

(1) This High Court does not exercise Original Jurisdiction in Criminal matters.

(2) Figures of institutions for a particular year may not tally exactly with the figures of disposals during the same year as some of the matters disposed of during a particular year would include cases instituted in the last few months of the previous year also, and some of the cases instituted during the year may be disposed of in the following year.

(3) Jury Reference: The result of a Jury Reference will depend upon the nature of the Reference and therefore there may be conviction both when it is accepted and also when it is rejected. Similarly there may not be any conviction depending upon the nature of the Reference even when it is accepted or rejected.

(4) The figures shown in sub-column (c) of Column 5 may not be exclusive of the figures in sub-column (b) of the same column as the accused acquitted in confirmation cases in respect of the charge under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code might have been convicted and sentenced for a lesser offence e.g., section 326, Indian Penal Code.

(5) This statement does not include the number of cases instituted and disposed of in the Saurashtra and Kutch Regions, as the record of those cases is not available here, the same having been transferred to the Gujarat High Court, after the bifurcation of the Bombay State on.-5-1960.

* Remanded.

High Court, Appellate side, Bombay, 18th July, 1962.
