Compoundable offences are those which can be compromised by the parties to the dispute. The permission of the court is not necessary. When an offence is compounded, the party, who has been aggrieved by the offence, is compensated for his grievance. Suppose your car accidentally hits a person on the road and he is injured. Though you may be guilty of rash and negligent driving, you can settle the matter by paying some money to the victim.
Note that only the aggrieved party or the victim may compound an offence. Not even the public prosecutor has the power to compound an offence.
