The passing of The Indian Evidence Act in 1872 was a ground breaking step. It was to change the entire working of courts as far as admissibility of evidence was concerned in our Indian courts.

Prior to the introduction of this act,
the rules of admissibility of evidence in our Indian courts were based on traditional systems. Different caste, community, social group had their own way of providing/submitting evidence in the court. The submission of evidence was hugely based on faith of a person, his social position and status in society, his community etc.
In short there was no uniform method.

By the introduction of this act everyone came under the same banner. Now there would be no different rules regarding the submission/admission of evidence in Indian Courts.
Now everyone had to follow the same prescribed rule regarding the admissibility of evidence.
