White Coller and Anti Bribe Law
The term "white collar" refers to non-manual work, typically in a professional or managerial capacity. White collar crimes are non-violent crimes that are typically committed in a business or professional setting, such as fraud, embezzlement, and money laundering.
In India, white collar crimes are punishable under various laws, including the Indian Penal Code, the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988, and the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002.
The Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 is a key law that aims to combat corruption in India. It criminalizes various types of corrupt practices, including accepting or giving bribes, and provides for the prosecution of public servants and private individuals who engage in such practices.
The Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 is a law that aims to prevent money laundering in India. It criminalizes the process of disguising the proceeds of illegal activities as legitimate funds, and provides for the investigation and prosecution of individuals and entities involved in money laundering.
If you have been accused of a white collar crime in India, it is important to seek the advice of a lawyer who has experience in this area of law and can provide legal representation to defend your rights and interests.
