Quid Pro Quo

In normal usage, Quid Pro Quo means Getting something in exchange of something. In simple it means an exchange of goods or services, where one transfer is contingent upon the other. English speakers often use the term to mean "a favour for a favour"; phrases with similar meaning include: "give and take", "tit for tat".

In legal usage, quid pro quo indicates that an item or a service has been traded in return for something of value, usually when the propriety or equity of the transaction is in question. For example, under the common law, a binding contract must involve consideration: that is, the exchange of something of value for something else of economic value. In the United States, if the exchange appears excessively one sided, courts in some jurisdictions may question whether a quid pro quo did actually exist and the contract may be void by law.

Similarly, political donors are legally entitled to support candidates that hold positions with which the donors agree, or which will benefit the donors. Such conduct becomes bribery only when there is an identifiable exchange between the contribution and official acts, previous or subsequent, and the term quid pro quo denotes such an exchange. The term may also be used to describe blackmail, where a person offers to refrain from some harmful conduct in return for valuable consideration.

Quid pro quo harassment occurs when employment or academic decisions or expectations (hiring, promotions, salary increases, shift or work assignments, performance standards, grades, access to recommendations, assistance with school work, etc.) are based on an employee or student's submission to or rejection of sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other behaviour of a sexual nature. These cases involve tangible actions that adversely affect either the conditions of work or academic progress.

The Merriam Webster Dictionary explains in simple language as something that is given to you or done for you in return for something you have given to or done for someone else.

Section 173 of Code of Criminal Procedure.

A Magistrate empowered to take cognisance of an offence, can call for the detailed Investigation Report from the Police Department. The Concerned Police Officer will have to submit the Detailed Investigation Report to the Magistrate ordered to investigate, for further lodging a case against the Respondent.

If the complainant is falsifying the records produced and the same is brought in the limelight then the Magistrate will not file any case. But if the Defendant found guilty as per the Police Investigation report, then the police officer has to file the FIR and can effect the arrest.
