Theft

This offence is defined in section 378 of the Code and it relates only to movable property. Thus it can be said that the immovable property can not be made a subject-matter of theft. But sometime the property which is immovable, after it is taken out from the earth can be stolen, for example a tree so long attached to earth can not be made a subject of the offence of theft is complete.

This term is defined as whoever, intending to take dishonestly any movable property out of the possession of any person without that person’s consent moves that property in order to such taking, is said to commit theft.

There are five exceptions to this definition.

The punishment for this offence is given in section 379 which says that the offence shall be punished with imprisonment to the extent of 3 years or with fine or with both.
