Provision

Whoever, having accepted any conditional remission of punishment, knowingly violates any condition on which such remission was granted, shall be punished with the punishment to which he was originally sentenced, if he has already suffered no part of that punishment, and if he has suffered any part of that punishment, then with so much of that punishment as he has not already suffered.


Simply Put

Remission is the shortening of convict’s prison sentence on account of his good behaviour. Such remission is sometimes granted on certain conditions. If a person who has come out on conditional remission violates knowingly any of such conditions, then it amounts to an offence under Section 227. Such person shall be punishable with the punishment to which he was originally sentenced. In other words, the remission given is withdrawn and the person will be required to serve the full sentence.
