Report No. 43

10.6. Recommendation regarding time-limits for prosecutions for certain offences.-

Acting on this principle, we think that there ought to be a time-limit for a prosecution for the following offences:-

(1) Incitement to mutiny or other act of insubordination.

(Maximum period of imprisonment-3 years).

(2) Dissuasion from enlisting and instigation to mutiny or insubordination after enlistment.

(Maximum period of imprisonment-3 years).

(3) Disruptive activity.

(Maximum period of imprisonment-7 years).

(4) Sedition.

(Maximum period of imprisonment-7 years).

(5) Contravention of an order made in respect of a notified place. (Maximum period of imprisonment-1 year).

A time-limit of one year should suffice in all these cases. In other respects, such as computation of the time-limit and the like, the detailed provisions recommended in our Report on the Penal Code1 should apply.
