Whether an act would amount to an offence if general exceptions under IPC cover it?

Law web/ September 17, 2020/ Indian Law

 As rightly contended by Mr. Sharath Chandran, it is a misnomer to say that the "Chapter IV – General exceptions" of the IPC is a defence for the accused. In the opinion of this Court, every act should pass through the prism of Chapter IV of the IPC to graduate into an offence. If an act complained of falls within the net of the exceptions in Chapter IV of the IPC,it is not an offence at all.
