compounding under FEMA

Regional/ Sub offices of RBI authorised to compound offences under the following regulations

Please refer to para 3.5 of A.P. (DIR Series) Circular No. 56 dated June 28, 2010 and para 2 of A.P. (DIR Series) Circular No.11 dated July 31, 2012 with respect to the classification of a contravention under FEMA by the Reserve Bank as ‘technical’ or ‘material’ or ‘sensitive/serious in nature’. On a review it has been decided to discontinue the classification of a contravention as ‘technical’ that was dealt with by way of an administrative/ cautionary advice and regularize such contraventions by imposing minimal compounding amount as per the compounding matrix as contained in the ‘Master Direction – Compounding of Contraventions under FEMA, 1999’ dated January 01, 2016, as amended from time to time.
