Corporate crimes are commonly referred to as white-collar crimes. White-collar crimes are those conducted by someone who has an influential position within the community and a well-recognized brand. Additionally, they are independent of ordinary crimes and arise out of unethical commercial practices basically for monetary advantages. Thus, corporate crimes are offences committed either by businessmen, companies, the industry, or firms or by people whose actions may be connected to a business or other business aspect. Thus, the Indian government has taken multiple actions against this kind of fraud in India. Moreover, the Companies Act empowers the Government of India with several kinds of measures for fighting a scam. The entire nation's economy suffers greatly as a result of this because the monetary value of losing revenue is much more than the total cost of every crime committed . The entire country suffers from a serious crisis, with fraud and bribery playing a large role. The legal system in India has not been complete enough for dealing with these problems. Furthermore, one of the variables responsible for the increase in corporate crimes is the lengthy process of judgement by courts. Since they violate the trust that has been placed in them, the criminal's renowned status actually enhances the chance for these kinds of crimes. Because of structural shortcomings which gave rise to corporate crimes after growth and development, financial markets suffered. This report will emphasise the impact of corporate fraud on the economy of the company as well as on the capital market of developing countries.
