What are the facts? What is the context?

Prokash Barman (Legal practitioner )     13 March 2023

There are no facts. The aforesaid questions are questionable in my Mind. Need solutions 

Dr J C Vashista (Advocate)     14 March 2023

The law provides for the compounding of offences wherein the court’s permission is a pre-requisite under Section 320(2) of the Criminal Procedure Code. These offences are punishable by certain sections of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, which may be compounded by the individuals listed in the third column of that table.

P. Venu (Advocate)     14 March 2023

Yes, Section 320 provides for compounding offences. The compounding is at the discretion of the victim.

T. Kalaiselvan, Advocate (Advocate)     14 March 2023

Section 320 cr.p.c. : The offences punishable under certain sections of Indian Penal Code, may be compounded by the persons mentioned  by the persons competent 


(4) (a) When the person who would otherwise be competent to com- pound an offence under this section is under the age of eighteen years or is an idiot or a lunatic, any person competent to contract on his behalf may, with the permission of the Court, compound such offence.

(b) When the person who would otherwise be competent to compound an offence under this section is dead, the legal representative, as defined in the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908 (5 of 1908 ), of such person may, with the consent of the Court, compound such offence.


Therefore it is compounding of offence and not compromise
