Report No. 142

7.12. Criminals may slip through the net with impunity.-

Equally untenable is the apprehension that by resorting to the scheme criminals may slip through the net with impunity and escape due punishment. The scheme being evolved ensures that in regard to serious offence a minimum substantive sentence of imprisonment is imposed. The scheme is for "concessional treatment" not for 'no punishments. The deterrent effect of a jail term operates with equal force whether the stigma is associated with a term of 6 months or 18 months. Besides, in the present scenario even after a protracted trial more than 75 per cent. of the cases result in acquittals as discussed elsewhere. This point of criticism is, therefore, devoid of merit.

Concessional Treatment for Offenders who on their own initiative choose to plead guilty without any bargaining Back
