It should be noted at this stage that, although an agreement for marriage is inconclusive, the marriage will be a valid marriage. All contracts are based on an agreement between individuals. The unacceptable influence arises from the inadequate application of the power of one party over the mind of the other party in the formation of the contract. In cases where people have special relationships with each other, it is considered that there is an undue influence, for example. B in a particular relationship: these are agreements with holders of official positions for which they undertake to use their influence for the benefit of the other party. In the case of Veerayya v. Sobhanandri[vii], a person reached an agreement to withdraw the charge of S. 420 from the Indian Penal Code in 1860 against the accused. As the offence has been aggravated, the Tribunal`s agreement is necessary and the agreement has therefore been annulled. In the case of Ouseph Poulo/Catholic Union Bank Ltd. [viii], two parties reached an agreement to terminate the criminal proceedings under some consideration and it was determined that such transactions were contrary to public policy.
In Canada, a case of non-performance based on illegality is cited: Royal Bank of Canada v. Newell, 147 D.L.R (4.) 268 (N.S.C.A.), in which a woman forged her husband`s signature on 40 cheques worth more than $58,000. To protect them from prosecution, her husband signed a letter of intent from the bank, in which he agreed to assume „all responsibilities and responsibilities“ for forged cheques. However, the agreement was unenforceable and was repressed by the courts because of its essential objective of „stifling criminal prosecution“. Due to the illegality of the contract and the cancelled status, the bank was forced to return the husband`s payments. When an agreement restricts the statute of limitations, it is anniated. Because their goal is to defeat the legal provisions. It is the agreements that completely or partially prohibit a contracting party from asserting its rights to a contract are null and void in this regard. The courts should be very careful when deciding on a matter of public policy.
The teaching must be applied with the necessary variation. Each case must be decided on its own facts. Some of the agreements that oppose public order are briefly illustrated below. Example: one of them obtained a loan from a bank by mortgaged certain goods with a bank as collateral. Subsequently, it turned out that the goods were either fraudulently overvalued or withdrawn in agreement with bank employees. Agreed to remedy the shortage by giving more goods than security in the form of assumptions. But there has been some delay in the commodity hypothesis. The bank filed a complaint. However, the complaint was withdrawn by the bank after the assumption was closed. The agreement on catch-up applications applied because the compromise agreement had been reached prior to the filing of a complaint. Example: A, a purohit was promised to Rs.50 considering getting a second woman for B. Subsequently, A brought an action against B in order to recover the aforementioned amount.
It was found that such a promise would amount to an illegal conjugal mediation contract and that the agreement was not applicable. As a result, the appeal was dismissed. None of the parties can impose an agreement that opposes „public policies.“
