hello, With the lower burden of proof and better case management tools, civil liability is easier to prove than criminal liability, and offers more flexible remedies which can be preventative as well as punitive. The penalties for criminal offences are fines and imprisonment, as well as other non-custodial punishments. > Civil liability. Civil liability gives a person rights to obtain redress from another person e.g. the ability to sue for damages for personal injury.

Hello As per Section 35 of Companies Act, 2013 Civil liability for misstatements in prospectus. (1) Where a person has subscribed for securities of a company acting on any statement included, or the inclusion or omission of any matter, in the prospectus which is misleading and has sustained any loss or damage as a consequence thereof, the company and every person who— (a) is a director of the company at the time of the issue of the prospectus; (b) has authorised himself to be named and is named in the prospectus as a director of the company, or has agreed to become such director, either immediately or after an interval of time; (c) is a promoter of the company; (d) has authorised the issue of the prospectus; and (e) is an expert referred to in sub-section (5) of section 26, shall, without prejudice to any punishment to which any person may be liable under section 36, be liable to pay compensation to every person who has sustained such loss or damage. (2) No person shall be liable under sub-section (1), if he proves— (a) that, having consented to become a director of the company, he withdrew his consent before the issue of the prospectus, and that it was issued without his authority or consent; or (b) that the prospectus was issued without his knowledge or consent, and that on becoming aware of its issue, he forthwith gave a reasonable public notice that it was issued without his knowledge or consent.
