Dear Manu,




 


Limitation in criminal matters - As per section 468 of Cr PC, Court cannot take cognizance of offence after expiry of following limitation period - (a) Six months, if the offence is punishable only with fine (b) One year, if the offence is punishable with imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year (c) three years, if the offence is punishable with imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years. However, in case of economic offences, there is no time limit.

Manu,


In appropriate cases court can extend the benefit of section 5 of the Act. Delay caused in filing the application was not wilful. In view ofthe fcts and circumstances, delay should be condoned on payment of costs.

Dear Shree,  You have mentioned as " However, in case of economic offences, there is no time limit."

Can you please tell me where this is mentioned? As I am interested.
