Criminal Law protects you against attacks on you, your family, and your property by another person. It deals with crime, defines criminal offenses and penalizes the offender.

Criminal law in India suggests offenses against each state, it includes felonies and misdemeanors. The standard of evidence for crimes is beyond a reasonable suspicion. Criminal law is administered by the Indian Penal Code, Crpc, evidence Act, etc.

A body of rules and statutes that describes conducting prohibited by the government because it advances and harms public safety and welfare and that establishes punishment to be required for the commission of such acts.

The term criminal law means crimes that may establish penalties. In contrast, Criminal Procedure defines the process through which the criminal laws are implemented. For example, the law forbidding murder is a substantive criminal law. The manner by which government enforces this law through the mix of prosecution and evidence is usually considered a procedural matter.

Crimes are usually categorized as felonies or misdemeanors based on their nature and the supreme punishment that can be forced. A felony involves serious misconduct that is condemned by death or by imprisonment for more than 1 year. Most state criminal legislation subdivides felonies into various classes with varying degrees of punishment.

 Crimes that do not amount to offenses are misdemeanors or violations. A misdemeanor is a misconduct for which the law commands punishment of no more than 1 year in prison. Lesser offenses, such as traffic and parking infractions, are often called infractions and are held as a part of criminal law.
