    Select Question Language :


    A enters into an agreement with B whereby B agrees absolutely to pay A Rupees One lakh per year for maintenance services rendered by A. B pays only a part of fees for maintenance services and A sues B. A provides the original written agreement in court. In court, B claims that the parties had orally agreed that the fees for maintenance services would be Rupees Fifty thousand per year despite the written contract. Which of the following statements is the most accurate application of the principle below? Principle Section 92 of the Indian Evidence Act, 1872, provides that if a contract has been proved by writing, then no evidence can be given of any oral agreement as between the parties to contradict, vary, add to, or subtract from its terms.

    Options :-

    1. Oral agreements are not valid in India, and therefore, B cannot provide any evidence about the oral agreement.

    2. B cannot provide evidence about the oral agreement, unless he can provide two independent witnesses to the oral agreement.

    3. Oral agreements are not valid evidence in any case, and therefore, B cannot provide any evidence about the oral agreement.

    4. B cannot provide evidence about the oral agreement as it varies from the terms of the written agreement provided in court.
