    Compounding Matters

    Section 441 of the Companies Act, 2013 deals with Compounding of offence. Compounding of offences is a settlement mechanism, by which, the defaulter is given an option to pay money in lieu of his prosecution, thereby avoiding a prolonged litigation. The legal meaning of compounding of offence is “Doing good the default/non-compliance”.

    The offences under the Companies Act, 2013 which cannot be compounded are:

    1.An offence which is punishable with imprisonment only.
    2.An offence which is punishable with imprisonment and also with fine

    It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

    Jurisdiction to handle cases for the compounding:

    Where the maximum amount of fine which may be imposed for such offence does not exceed twenty-five lakh rupees, then the application for compounding shall be filed with the Regional Director or any officer authorised by the Central Government.

    Where the maximum amount of fine which may be imposed for such offence exceed twenty-five lakh rupees, then the application for compounding shall be filed with the NCLT.
