Provision

Nothing is an offence which is done by a child above seven years of age and under twelve, who has not attained sufficient maturity of understanding to judge of the nature and consequences of his conduct on that occasion.


Simply put

This section means that the child between 7-12 years of age can commit no offence if he doesn't know the nature and consequence of his act. For eg chotu and motu were playing with other kids both kids are of 10 years age chotu instead of ball threw a stone a motu, he got injured since chotu didn't knew the nature and consequence of his act he won't be liable.
