DELHI HIGH COURT – A LIFE SENTENCE MEANS THE ACTUAL LIFE IMPRISONMENT FOR THE ENTIRE LIFE OF THE CONVICT

Delhi High Court

Date of Judgement: 09.11.2016

Life sentence is not limited to either 14 years, or 20 years, or even 25 years. A life sentence means the actual life imprisonment for the entire life of the convict. The same may be curtailed by the State by premature release. However, that is the discretion of the State Government to be exercised on the advice of the SRB (Sentence Review Board). The SRB itself has to arrive at its opinion on the aspect of premature release on sound principles.
