Giving or fabricating false evidence impinges directly administration of justice and may also result in the miscarriage of justice. In criminal jurisprudence everyone has a right to represent his case with correct information in the form of evidence to justify his case. But in some of the cases person try to made another person responsible by providing false information to the police, they run the risk of being charged with fabricating false evidence. If it is determined that their goal was to obtain a conviction for the death penalty, life in prison, or a sentence of seven years or more, they will be punished in accordance with the offense for which they intended to falsely implicate that other person under Sections 194 and 195 of the Indian Penal Code; otherwise, they will be punished under Section 193 of IPC. A prosecution for a minor offense under Section 182 of the Indian Penal Code cannot be left to such a person. Now 163 year old Indian Penal Code, 1860 replaced with Bharatiya Nyaya (Second) Sanhita, 2023. In new code the concept of false evidence is defined under chapter XIV from section 227 onwards.
