Withdrawal of Immunity granted to a person from prosecution, penalty and fine- (Ministry of Finance ) (21 Sep 2016)



As per sub-section 2 of Section 32K of the Central Excise Act, 1944 also made applicable to Service Tax matters by virtue of Section 83 of the Finance Act, 1994 and subsection 2 of Section 127H of the Customs Act, 1962, immunity granted to a person from prosecution, penalty and fine shall stand withdrawn if such person fails to pay any sums specified under order of settlement within the stipulated time. In this regard, it has been brought to the notice of the Board that the conditions subject to which the immunity has been granted have not been complied with by the applicants in some cases, thereby rendering the order of settlement void.

In view of the above, field formations are instructed to closely monitor and ensure strict compliance with the conditions stipulated in the order of Settlement Commission. In cases of any violations, the jurisdictional Commissioner should initiate necessary action under the relevant law after bringing it to the notice of the Commission.
