The Agreement Is Opposed To Public Policy

Privy counsel in the case of Raja Venkata Subhadrayamma Guru v. Sree Pusapathi Venkapathi Raju[vi], said that the court cannot refuse to force such arrangements if the court sees that it is not made with a bonafide or reward object seems to be the subject of blackmail and maintained that Champerty and maintenance are not illegal in India. Any trade in enemies is contrary to public order. It is therefore illegal and not aeig. However, if a contract is concluded during the peace period and a war subsequently breaks out, one of the two things can lead to the suspension of the treaty or termination, depending on the intention of the parties. In principle, it is presumed that a contract or act is contrary to public order if it results in a violation of the law, harms citizens or harms the state. In general, public policy means that courts sometimes invalidate a contract because it is contrary to the common good. Agreements on the use of the influence of corruption in obtaining government jobs, titles or honours are illegal and therefore unenforceable. Indeed, if such agreements are valid, corruption will increase and lead to the inefficiency of public services.

Any agreement reached with judges or magistrates is annulled by asserting undue influence in changing the decision or cancelling the accused`s debts or by interference with the judicial process, may quash the agreement. Agreements or contracts that cause a statue or a violation of public order are not enforced by law. A was promised r.200 in exchange for the acquisition of another woman for C. A has filed an appeal against B for the recovery of the amount. Subsequently, the Tribunal found that the agreement was not binding, as it was akin to a conjugal mediation contract and the appeal was dismissed. An agreement with the intention of defrauding creditors or tax authorities is not applicable, as it is contrary to public policy. In simple terms, pubic policy refers to the policy of the government for the good of society, It can also be said that if an agreement against a developed interest of society or morals of the time, it can be said that against public order and the agreement will be considered invalid. It was held that an agreement could not be applied if it was contrary to the public interest [ii] or contrary to general legal policy.

In the case of P. Rathinam v. Union of Idnia[iv], the Supreme Court held that the notion of public order open to change and enlargement another example of an agreement that is contrary to public order would be an agreement to obtain a job or government title with corrupt funds. Such a treaty would not be applicable. Such a contract is considered contrary to public order, because if it were allowed, it would increase corruption and render inefficient and unreliable public services. A contractual condition could be in opposition to public order if the state has an interest in preventing the state`s condition. The view of treaties, contrary to public policy, has changed over time. For example, a contractual condition that can be maintained today could have been contrary to public policy in the past. Example: Shaikh Kalu (vs) Ram Saran Bhagat (1909):Facts: Out of 30 chamberlains in the city of Patna, 29 have agreed to provide “R” to supply it, and have also agreed not to deliver their entire production to anyone. Under the agreement, “R” was free to refuse the goods if they could not find a deal.

Stop: the agreement has been limited to trade and is therefore in und arreer.11 Marital mediation: as a public policy, marriage must take place with the free choice of parties and cannot be disrupted by third parties acting as brokers. The agreement on the intermediation of marriages is not concluded. Nor can consent to the dowry be obtained.12. Agreement on creditor fraud (or tax authorities): an agreement to defraud creditors (or) tax authorities is not applicable, as it is contrary to public policy.13
