Compounding of offences

(Querist) 21 October 2010 This query is : Resolved 
My querry is regarding compounding of offences.

Till 1-1-2010 Sec. 354 IPC is compoundable with permission of court. By virtue of the latest amending act, it was now made non-compoundable. In one cae the accused was tried and convicted for the offence under Sec. 354 IPC in the year 2009. The offence is in the year 2007.

Can he now compound the offence?, If so what is the procedudre and provision. Sionce the date of compounding is after commencement of the amending ACt. Any expert with case law

Compounding of an offence is a procedural law which can not give retrospective effective it shall always be prospective. So the offence can not be compounded as per present law. Compounding is always possible at appellate stage. After conviction the offence can be compounded.
