According to Section 147 of the Indian Penal Code, if a person tries to commit nuisance (disturbance) in a community act, then that person is imprisoned for a term and imposed with a fine. Such a nuisance is considered a crime in the Indian Penal Code because it serves to create a disturbance that spreads hatred in society.

It is often seen and heard that there was a riot in some community work and a couple of people were arrested by the police who also tried to riot. The court punishes the rioting people. They are punished with a period of one-year imprisonment or fine or both.

Provisions of Punishment and Bail under Section 147

According to Section 147 of the Indian Penal Code, if a person tries to commit disturbance, then that person is punished by imprisonment for one year term or fine, or both.

The imprisonment of a term can also be extended up to 2 years if he tries to do such work again. It is a crime to spoil any work that is going on peacefully, which the court does not tolerate at all, as it serves to create disturbance in the society.

This offense is bailable according to the section of the Indian Penal Code. In this crime, the accused gets bail easily. This is not considered a major crime, so the court accepts the bail plea and the accused is released from jail. The court further advises him not to commit any such disturbance again.

Let us see an example to understand this Section better.

 Example:  There was some group meeting in a village and a person who was not in the favor of this meeting, started talking some nuisance and when the people did not listen to him, then that person started spreading disturbance and one of his two other people joined and those people started fighting and started creating a fuss.

Then the villagers called the police and the police arrested those people. The police presented those people in the court and the court punished them with imprisonment for a term and financial penalty. They were strictly advised not to do any such thing again in the future.
