In respect of penalty appeals, the declarant shall get waiver of the 75% of the penalty levied and immunity from prosecution. In respect of specified tax, the declarant gets complete waiver of/immunity from levy of penalty and immunity from prosecution.

CBDT has received various queries from stakeholders seeking clarifications about various provisions of the Scheme. The issues raised have been examined and a set of 14 FAQs has been issued vide Circular No. 33 of 2016.
