Agreement is an Act in the eye of law whereby two persons being ad idem declare their common intention to do or not to do any Act, deed or think. An agreement is the combined product of offer and acceptance for some consideration passed between them. The agreement creates an outstanding obligation or liability.

The Indian contract law

The Indian contract law is governed by Indian contract Act, 1872. There are other statues which are equally applicable such as transfer of property Act, 1882, specific relief Act, 1953, sale of goods Act, 1930 etc.

For the formation of a contract the process of proposal or offer by one party and the acceptance thereof by the other is necessary. This generally involves the process of negotiation where the parties apply their minds make offer and acceptance and create a contract.

When one person signifies to another his willingness to do or abstain from doing anything with a view to obtaining the assent of the other to such act or abstinence, he is said to make a proposal.

When the person to whom the proposal is made signifies his assent thereto, the proposal is said to be accepted.

In order to convert a proposal into a promise, the acceptance must be
  • Absolute and unqualified Any departure from the terms of the offer or any qualification vitiates the acceptance unless it is agreed to by the person from whom the offer comes. An acceptance with a variation is no acceptance; it is simply a counter proposal.

  • is competent to contract.

Therefore a minor is not competent to contracts and an agreements by a minor is void ab initio. He can not ratify an agreement on attaining the age of majority and validate the same. (Void ab initio means it has at no time had any legal validity).

The following persons are therefore incompetent to contract
  • Minors

  • Disqualified Persons by law to which they are subject
