Indian Penal Code has the clauses of punishing a wrong doer in many ways. The usual ways of punishing are imprisonment for a limited number of years, imprisonment for the life time, financial penalty, death punishment, direct encounters and more. But do the punishments levied by Indian Penal Code really serve the purpose. There are many drawbacks of the punishments levied by Indian Penal Code. Those can be listed as below.

1. Imprisonment of a person who was the primary earner, makes his dependents to suffer significantly. They may have to find other sources of income or burn their savings.

2. The ways of imprisonment has been handled in different ways based on the person's status in the society. High profiled people like politicians or film actors are being treated royally in the prisons. But the common people are often treated in inhuman ways.

3. The women, who have been given the punishment of imprisonment have been sexually exploited by the policemen. They usually do not have the freedom to protest against such exploitations.

4. Innocent people, who have been charged with punishments do not have the ability to prove their innocence because of their inability to bear the high fee of good lawyers and other legal expenditures. So they simply have to undergo the punishment as victims. These cases make people to lose faith in judiciary and the law of the land.

5. Death punishment is not the real the solution to punish people. They just take the life of one person, but it is not a way to fix the problem of crime. The purpose of the fact that, -The penal code is to correct the wrong behaviors of a person, if any- has been not met.

It has been a matter of criticism by the legal experts. Many countries have banned the death punishment. But Indian Penal Code still has the clause of death punishments. Often death punishments have been charged to the innocent people. Those cases can never be pardonable.

So we require Indian Penal Code to be modified to come out of these drawbacks. We need to have a Penal Code to crate a real civilized and crime free society.
