Defamation as a criminal offence is defined under Section 499 and is punishable under Section 500 of the Indian Penal Code. The definition under Section 499 covers both ‘Libel’ (written defamation) and ‘Slander’ (spoken defamation), and is accompanied by ten exceptions.

It is not defamation to impute anything, which is true about any person, if it is for the public good that the imputation should be made published. Whether it is for people in general great is a question of fact.
