Provisions of Section 313 CrPC enables the accused to offer his explanation to evidence adduced against him by the prosecution whereas provisions of 315 enable the accused to adduce evidence in his favour. However, please note that the accused appearing as his own witness is a double-edged sword. He is liable for cross examination and this could be quite tricky unless he is totally faultless.
