Report No. 156
12.94. The Law Commission in its Forty second Report recommended that the last chapter of the Indian Penal Code containing section 511 be omitted and, instead, a new Chapter VB entitled "Attempt" consisting of two sections 120C and 120D be inserted after Chapter VA on the lines indicated by the Commission under para. 5.54 thereof. Accordingly, clause 206 of the Bill seeks to omit Chapter XXIII of the Indian Penal Code. After having carefully considered the matter, we are of the view that section 511 is working well and there is no need to omit it and transpose its provisions to a new Chapter VB containing sections 120C and 120D for the reasons discussed in Chapter VI of this Report.
