SARAL PETTY OFFENCES DEPOSITE SCHEME

This  Scheme  is a small  step in the  direction  of making  our criminal  justice delivery  system more user friendly, time saving and more responsive  to the changing need of the society. The object is to provide  speedy justice  to all concerned  in regard to Petty  Offences  under  section 206(2) of the Criminal  Procedure  Code  1973. These would  include  Trafffic  Challan  under  the  Motor  Vehicles  Act,  Challans  under  the Police Act, Public  Gambling Act, Kshetra Panchayat  and Zila Panchayat  Adhiniyam. Such Criminal  Cases can be summarily  disposed  of under  section 260 and 261 of the Criminal  Procedure   Code,  1973,  without  compelling   the  litigant  to  appear  in  the Court. This would  be a small step in taking justice  to the doorsteps  of the litigant,  in which the State Bank of India is helping  us.
At  the bottom  of each Special Summons,  a note shall be made,  informing  the litigant  that  if he desires  to plead  guilty to the charge  and does  not want  to contest the case, then in addition  to the other modes provided  in section  206 of the Code, he may  deposit  the  tine  specified  in Special  Summons  in cash,  in any branch  of the State Bank  of India.  On such  deposit  the case  shall  stand  disposed  of or closed.  A receipt   in  three  parts  shall  be  enclosed  with  each  Special   Summon   mentioning therein  the  details  of the  account  known  as Power  Jyoti  Account,  Court  Number, Case  Number,   Year,  proposed   fine  along  with  a  fixed  amount  of  Rs.  50/-  to  be charged  by the bank  as handling  charges.  In this manner  a litigant,  upon  receipt  of the Special  Summons,  shall have to merely  deposit  the fine specified  in the Special Summons  in the bank with the help of deposit  slip enclosed  with  Summons  and the bank  shall inform  the Court concerned  that Fine has been  deposited.  The case shall then be treated  as disposed  of or closed. The litigant will, therefore,  not be required to go the Court on receipt  of summons  for Petty Offences.
Initially,   this   Scheme    is   being   launched    In  four Districts  i.e. Allahabad,   Kanpur  Nagar, Varanasi  and  Ballia.  Subsequently,  it will be launched  in all the remaining  districts of the State.
