"Ratanlal and Dhirajlal's THE INDIAN PENAL CODE is a legal classic. It is the most original, authentic, dependable and brilliant work having a profound impact on its vast readership that covers judges, lawyers, police officers, administrators, law teachers and academicians, students, research scholars and in fact everyone who is in any way concerned with the administration of Criminal Law and Justice in this country. The fact that it has entered into 31st edition speaks volumes about the undisputed quality and standard of this work and its undiminishing appeal to its readership which has only grown with the passage of time. While time has always beaten men and matter, this gem of a classic has literally scored over it and lives today to immortalise its authors. A good work as it is, it is the very life-blood of its authors. ?Revised under the Chief Editorship of the eminent jurist Hon'ble Mr. Justice Y.V. Chandrachud, Former Chief Justice of India in collaboration with Shri V.R. Manohar, Former Advocate-General of Maharashtra, Senior Advocate Supreme Court of India, Ex-Chairman Bar Council of Maharashtra, Chief Editor, All India Reporter, Criminal Law Journal, AIR Manual, etc. this work of the great masters will retain its freshness and appeal. The present 31st edition has been thoroughly revised and at places even re-written in the light of all statutory amendments and plethora of cases that have emerged during the last 5 years. So also, the entire impact of drastic changes brought out in the Criminal Law by the passage of (New), Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 has been absorbed wherever required and discussed at length with original comments in this revised work. State Amendments have been incorporated under appropriate sections in the body of the book. ?Completing more than a century of its existence, since the first edition of this monumental work was published in 1896, and having practically surpassed more than a lakh of circulation-mark by now, this glorious work of the celebrated authors in its present edition, will find ready and whole-hearted acceptance. In all its glory this New Edition, thoroughly revised, is now released with the fondest of all hopes that it will meet the tumultuous welcome from its vast readership.
