Best Answer

Deliberate handling is a direct free kick offense. However, a goalkeeper who handles the ball within his own penalty area, having received it directly from a teammate's pass, teammate's throw-in, or at any time for longer than 6 seconds, will have committed an indirect-free-kick infraction.

If goal keeper pass the penalty box before he punt the ball is a direct kick or indirect kick awarded to opposing team?

Although this technically could be called deliberate handling, resulting in a direct free kick at the point of the infraction, in reality a referee will consider this trifling and will let it go with a verbal warning to the goalkeeper. The more the behavior persists, the more likely a handling call will occur.
