is crpc procedural and substantive law both?

found this very conflicting. in many of the notes crpc is mentioned as procedural law whereas in judiciary classes crpc is explained as procedural and substantive law both. could anyone please explain with an example that what option should I opt when it is specifically asked that crpc is which law?

Laws which fix duties, establish rights and responsibilities among & for persons natural or otherwise are “Substantive laws”, while those which merely prescribe the manner in which such rights & responsibilities may be exercised & enforced in a Court are ‘Procedural Laws

It is both.  While dealing with procedural law, it also deals with substantive laaqw, ex sectin 125 to 128 Cr.P.C.  etc.  There are other provisions which deal with substantive law.  It is self contained eancment, having procedures and also substaintive laws.
