The government's inability to deal with situations in which the offender departs the nation to avoid facing the prosecution for the crime is demonstrated by India's experience with economic crimes. The Fugitive Economic Offenders Act of 2018 intends to help the government recover property from fugitive economic offenders who are seeking to evade the Indian court system. Economic crimes including fraud, counterfeiting, tax evasion, money laundering, Benami transactions, creditor deception, and other related omissions are not obsolete. Despite the fact that the Act was designed to ease the immobility that prosecution powers were compelled to face owing to the absence of the criminal, it goes far beyond natural justice principles and criminology foundations. The purpose of this essay is to critically evaluate the Fugitive Economic Offenders Act of 2018, as well as its silence on crucial components that were intended to be accommodated and served but are being overlooked.
