Date the Indian Evidence Act was commenced(meaning begin; come into action)- 1 September 1872
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.
The first part of Indian Evidence Act deals with RELEVANCY OF FACTS.
Relevancy means “the quality or state of being closely connected or appropriate” ; “appropriate to the current time, period, or circumstances”
Chapter I and Chapter II fall under Part 1.
Section 1 to Section 55 fall under Part 1.
Chapter I (1-4) is the preliminary chapter which has basic definitions and is the introduction part of this act.
The whole base of Indian Evidence Act is pillared on four questions-
1. WHAT IS EVIDENCE GIVEN FOR?
Answer is- Evidence is given for Facts (Facts in Issue and Relevant Facts)
(Note that evidence is not given for Law.)
2. HOW ARE THE EVIDENCE FOR FACTS GIVEN?
Answer is- Evidence for facts are given orally called Oral Evidence or by proper documents called Documentary Evidence.
1. Short title, extent and commencement.
