Can fine imposed under section 13 be recovered in the event of default?


Yes. Section 69 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002, provides that where any fine or penalty imposed on any person is not paid within six months from the day of imposition of fine or penalty, the Director or any other officer-authorised by him in this behalf may proceed to recover the amount from the said person in the same manner as prescribed in Schedule II of the Income-tax Act, 1961 for the recovery of arrears and he or any officer authorised by him in this behalf shall have all the powers of the Tax Recovery Officer mentioned in the said Schedule for the said purpose.
