Provision

Nothing is an offence which is done by a child under seven years of age.


Simply put

This section means if a child under 7 years of age does any act, it won't be an offence. For eg a child of 6 years age while playing with his father's revolver thinking it of as his toy pulls the trigger and shot neighbour child, this act won't be an offence for child, as he had no idea of the nature of act.
