Malimath Report

Malimath Report

Justice Malimath Committee or The Committee on Reforms of the Criminal Justice System was constituted by the Home Ministry in 2000. The committee had submitted its report in 2003 and made recommendations on crime investigation and punishment.

The recommendations were never implemented. It is now going to be revisited by the government. One of its key recommendations is admissibility of confessions made before a police officer as evidence in a court of law.

Other recommendations are:

  • Stringent punishment for false registration of cases,
  • Constituting a National Judicial Commission and
  • Amending Article 124 to make impeachment of judges less difficult
  • Standard of “proof beyond reasonable doubt” followed in criminal cases be done away with.
