Indivjal Dhasmana/ 15 Jun 19 | 02:30 AM

The Central Board of Direct Taxes issued new norms for compounding of offences on Friday. These will replace the old guidelines. 


The new guidelines have exclusion provisions, under which, offences done under the Black Money (Undisclosed Foreign Income and Assets) and Imposition of Act, 2015, the Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Act, 1988 cannot be compounded in normal cases. This includes money laundering cases. Compounding means that the authorities agree to not prosecute offenders in return for a consideration.
