Remission of Sentence: A long road to justice for the convicted prisoners in India

Ø Remission of sentences

In remission, the duration of the sentence is reduced, without changing the nature of the sentence. In remission, the nature of the sentence is remained untouched, while the duration is reduced i.e. the rest of the sentence need not be undergone. For example, a person sentenced for a term of two years, his sentence is now reduced to one year. The effect of the remission is that the prisoner is given a certain date on which he shall be released and the eyes of the law he would be a free man. However, in case of breach of any o f the condition of remission, it will be cancelled and the offender has to serve the entire term for which he was originally sentenced. The procedure followed is given under Section 432 of CrPC, 1973. The government would ask the opinion of the court which gave such a sentence. The court would revert with proper records. The government can grant or reject the application for remission and suspension if in its view all the conditions necessary for such a grant are not fulfilled. the offender may if at large, be arrested by any police officer without a warrant and is to undergo the unexpired portion of the sentence. The power of remission is wholly an executive action. There is no law as such to question the legality of this action, but the government should use this power fairly and not in an arbitrary manner. However, the court must consider the limitation provided under Section 433A of the CrPC, 1973. The power of remission and suspension should not in any way interfere with the conviction of the court, it should affect the execution of the sentence.
