what amounts to Taking Cognizance of an Offence?

What is meant by "Taking cognizance of an Offence" by a Magistrate. Does the Code of Criminal Procedure defined the expression taking cognizance of  an offence by the Magiastrate?

Applying his judicial mind and coming to the conclusion that an offence has been madeout in the complaint or chargesheet is called  "taking cognizance". Refer 2005 SCC (Cri) 1697
