If they have assaulted somebody while committing the theft, then they should be given the same punishment as a violent offender.

Fraud and Deceit and Willful Default

Fraud, deceit and willful default are not light crimes.  

They should be dealt with very strictly.

If the perpetrator of this white collar crime, can compensate the victims and satisfy the victims’ grievance, then they should not be imprisoned, but a punitive tax can be imposed on them for 10 years.  

In any case they should be given the punishment described above for forced theft with threat of assault.

In cases when white collared criminals have caused the deaths (including suicide) of others, then these criminals must be given the same punishment as a violent offender.

Non Violent Theft – White Collar Theft other than Fraud/Deceit/ Willful Default

These could include software/movie etc piracy, stealing of ideas and plagiarism, insider trading and such offenses.

If the perpetrator of this white collar crime, can compensate the victim and satisfy the victim’s grievance, then they should not be imprisoned, but a punitive tax can be imposed on them for 5 years.

After the third offence of this white collar theft,  they should be given the punishment described above for forced theft with threat of assault.

If they cannot compensate the victim, then they should be made to do 1 months community service for every Rs 100,000 that was stolen upto to a maximum of 6 months.
