Section 209 of the Indian Penal Code penalizes dishonestly making false claims in a court by imprisonment up to two years and fine. The requirements are that the accused made a claim in a Court of Justice, the claim was false either entirely or in part, and that the claim was made dishonestly, fraudulently, or with the intention to injure or to annoy another person.
Under Section, a litigant makes a ÒclaimÓ in a Court of Justice when he applies seeking relief or remedy from the court, and the offence is committed the moment the false claim is filed before the Court.
Section 192 of the Indian Penal Code provides definition of Òfalse evidenceÓ.
