Detention

Not allowing access to the owner of the goods by a legal order/notice is called detention. However the ownership of goods still lies with the owner. It is issued when it is suspected that the goods are liable to confiscation.


Seizure

Seizure is taking over of actual possession of the goods by the department. Seizure can be made only after inquiry/investigation that the goods are liable to confiscation.


Confiscation

Confiscation of the goods is the ultimate act after proper adjudication. Once confiscation takes place, the ownership as well as the possession goes out of the hands of the original owner and into the hands of the Government Authority.
