civil liability — monetary punishment
criminal liability — involves imprisonment
Sec 34 is for criminal liability
Sec 35 is for civil liability
if ca gives false, misleading information is prospectus then he is liable under sec 34 for criminal liability as per section 447 and if investor looses money then he will get liable to pay damages under sec 35 also.
so both are not mutually exclusive, both may applicable together and both have different exceptions
