Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act ( MCOC) is law enacted by Maharashtra state in India in 1999 to combat organised crime and terrorism.[1] The preamble to MCOC says that "the existing legal framework, ie the penal and procedural laws and the adjudicatory system, are found to be rather inadequate to curb or control the menace of organised crime. Government has, therefore, decided to enact a special law with stringent and deterrent provisions including in certain circumstances power to intercept wire, electronic or oral communication to control the menace of organised crime." [2]

Unlike normal law the confessions before senior police officers are admissible, not only against the accused giving the confession but also against the other accused in the same case.

The anticipatory bail is not available to anyone accused of having committed an offence under MCOC.
