In simple terms, criminal revision refers to the revised court sentence given to a criminal for a crime that he has committed. In cases, where a crime was not committed, the defendant may be pardoned with all due honour. There are many cases in which a criminal has not been defended by a good advocate and the other advocate takes undue advantage of this and asks for maximum sentences and very heavy fines and compensations to be paid by the defendant. The law is in place to ensure everyone gets justice for the crime they have committed, in the quantity they deserve, not too little or too harsh. So, a criminal can exercise his right and through his advocate appeal to a higher court to get his sentence or punishment revised. The higher court has the right to investigate the circumstances of the case and change the decision if required. Criminal revision needs a lot of research and dedication to be put in place by a advocate because they are trying to prove in a higher court that a decision made by a qualified judge in a lower court, within the rules of the Constitution of India, was incorrect and need to be changed.
