Section 320 of the Code of Criminal Procedure defines “compounding” as to forbear from prosecution for consideration or any private motive. Aiyar’s Law Lexicon defines it variously as “arranging, coming to terms; condone for money”. Compounding is thus is a legally recognized arrangement whereby the person charged with an offence is offered the option of avoiding prosecution and imprisonment in lieu of monetary considerations by way of penalty; compounding is essentially a contract between the State and the offender whereby the State secures revenue and the offender secures immunity from prosecution.

The following offences are not eligible for compounding:

•          Offences specified in clauses (a) to (j of para 24.17 and other offence specified in clause (z which are relatable to offences specified in clauses (a) to (h of the said para; if the person charged with the offence had compounded earlier in respect of any of the said offences
