Indian Penal Code (IPC) :

Indian Penal Code (IPC) is a document that covers almost all the crime happening in the society. It is a piece of British colonial legislation dating from 1860. Now it provides a penal code for all of India including Jammu and Kashmir, where it was renamed the Ranbir Penal Code (RPC). The code applies to any offence committed by an Indian Citizen anywhere and on any Indian registered ship or aircraft (This law does not however apply to the armed forces or supersede any other acts). IPC came into force in 1862 (during the British Raj) and is regularly amended.

The Indian Penal Code was inherited by Pakistan and Bangladesh, formerly part of British India. It was also adopted wholesale by the British colonial authorities in Burma, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei, and remains the basis of the criminal codes in those countries.
