One of the chief instruments of policy against smugglers, narco-terrorists, drug-traffickers and foreign exchange manipulators is forfeiture of their illegally acquired properties. It has been realised worldwide that forfeiture of properties is a very major deterrent to these activities. Therefore, Government of India enacted in 1976, the Smugglers and Foreign Exchange Manipulators (Forfeiture of Property) Act,1976, with the objective of preventing smuggling activities and foreign exchange manipulations by depriving the persons engaged in such activities of their ill-gotten wealth. Later on, in 1985, Chapter V-A was added to Narcotics Drugs & Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPSA 1985) with the same objective in respect of narcotic and illicit drug traffickers.
