Definition Of Agreement Under Contract Act 1872

Therefore, a minor or a person with an unhealthy mind is not compatible or if that person has been excluded from contraction by laws to which he is subject. In this case, the contract is inconclusive. According to article 10 of the Contracts Act, a contract is valid if it has been concluded with the free consent of the parties. There is only one exception to article 26, i.e. a convention limiting the marriage of a minor. This is due to the fact that marriage to a minor is openly contrary to public order and section 10 of the Contracts Act. Where a contract circumvents a provision of a Statute or null and voids the purpose of the Statute (i.e., it does not render the provision relevant), it is considered to be contrary to the provision of this Act. In accordance with Section 30, betting agreements are not valid and no legal action can be taken to recover something won by a bet. In addition, no legal action may be taken to induce a person to stick to the outcome of a match or other uncertain event if such an event has been the subject of a bet.

In accordance with Section 28(a), an agreement by which a Contracting Party asserts its rights (i.e.: Its right to transfer courts) is wholly or totally limited by the usual judicial proceedings before the ordinary courts, or which limits its time limit for asserting its legal rights. Section 27 provides that any agreement preventing a person from engaging in a lawful profession, trade or activity of any kind is not valid to that extent. [ii] “Any promise and any series of promises that constitute mutual consideration is an agreement” – Section 2 (e) of the Contractual Act, Section 28(b), speaks of those contractual conditions which, although they do not limit the limitation period, crowd out a person to assert a right or exonerate a party from any liability if he does not do so within the period provided for in the contract. Such contracts are also inexigable. This is because such a treaty prevents a party from enforcing its law. This decision was prompted by the Delhi High Court in Nanak Builders and Investors Pvt. Ltd. v Vinod Kumar Alag AIR 1991 Delhi 315, the court having decided that an oral agreement could also be a valid and enforceable contract. Therefore, in the strict sense of the term, it is not necessary for a contract to be in writing, unless this is provided for by law or the parties themselves intend to reduce the contractual conditions to the written form. The parties must conclude their own contract.

The courts will not enter into a contract for the parties if the conditions are indeterminate or unexplained. The court must first have ascerted that the parties have actually entered into a contract before attempting to verify its terms. Disqualified means a person who does not have the right to enter into a contract. Z.B.
