The paper is concerned with the powers and functions of criminal Courts, as provided under Chapter III of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973. In dispensing justice, Courts need to exercise power conferred on to them in a just and equitable manner, with no scope for arbitrary use of power. In order to ensure the same, we intend to approach and evaluate such powers (Ashworth, 2006). They’re in-depth nature, and the practice followed over the years with regard to such powers.
