2016 (9) TMI 1344

Head Note:
Guilty under Sections 18(2) and 18(3) read with Section 58 of FERA, 1973 - liability by a deeming fiction - criminal liability fastened against in charge and responsible for the conduct of the business of the company - Held that:- No evidence has been lead by the Enforcement Directorate in the Adjudication Proceedings to the effect that the respondents were in-charge and were responsible for the conduct of the business of the company. Vicarious liability as has been held by the Hon’ble Supreme Court can only be inferred against the company for the requisite statements in the complaint are made so as to make accused therein vicariously liable for offence committed by company along with averments in a petition contending that accused were in-charge of and responsible for the business of the company and by virtue of their position they are liable to be proceeded with. No vicarious liability on the part of the respondents herein has been pleaded and proved, therefore, vicarious liability cannot be inferred ipso facto by the Adjudicating Authority. We do not find any latent or patent illegality, irregularity or infirmity in the Adjudication Order. The Revision in our opinion has no merits and is liable to be dismissed.
