About the Book

IEA@150 is a book to mark the completion of 150 years of the Indian Evidence Act, 1872. Science and technology have evolved so much that the means of commission of an offence is no more limited to the use of conventional ways of committing an offence.

The cyber world has also seen drastic evolution leading to the enactment of the Information Technology Act, 2000. The mode of production of evidence in Court is also not the same anymore. Now, evidence may also be given in the form of electronic means.

In the present day, the personal information of people is no more personal. The data is used to commit different forms of crimes from a distant place. In 150 years the society has evolved so much that it has learnt different means of committing offences including means of destroying and preserving the evidence.

The Indian Evidence Act, 1872 is considered as a masterpiece in itself as it has managed to survive the modern changes. The main objective of the book is to understand the working of the Indian Evidence Act since its enactment and to assess how far the legislation has achieved its purpose.

The book will help students, research scholars, advocates, judges and teachers to have a panoramic view of the functioning and developments in the field of law of evidence. The Center for Criminal Law has taken the initiative of inviting papers on the subject which will be published under the aegis of Center for Criminal Law, NUSRL, Ranchi.
