Indian Evidence Act
The Law of Evidence may be defined as a system of rules for ascertaining controverted questions of fact in judicial inquiries. It bears the same relation to a judicial investigation as logic to reasoning. The object of every judicial proceeding is the enforcement of some right or liability which invariably depends upon certain facts.
During our interaction with young advocates, aspirants of competitive examinations and law students, it was felt that there seems to be a crying need for a book on Law of Evidence that could fulfil their requirement in a simple manner. Keeping in view this aspect we have prepared this Manual in very simple language which is the first of its own kind.
We have immense pleasure in presenting A Manual on Law of Evidence before the legal fraternity, Teachers, Judges, Advocates, aspirants of competitive examinations and law students. The authors intend to fulfil the need for the knowledge on the subject in a graded manner and at the same time packaging it in a capsule form for all the stakeholders.
We may humbly say, that we have taken care to make the subject simple and interesting. We have gone through various reports of Law Commission of India, Committees on Criminal Justice System, for preparing this book.
We owe a deep debt of gratitude to Hon’ble Dr. Justice D.K. Arora, Judge, Allahabad High Court, Lucknow Bench, Lucknow, for his inspiring encouragement in this venture. We were also benefitted from the discussions with him on several topics of Law of Evidence.
