The inadequacy of the consideration is a fact that the court should take into account when considering whether A`s consent has been issued or not. Contract law defines “reflection” as an answer to the question “How do you benefit from the performance of the contract?” Both parties must take into account the fact that the agreement is legally binding. For example, if you buy a jacket from your favorite store, the garment is the consideration you will receive while your payment is the consideration that will be received from the store. The accused promised to pay his wife a fixed amount of money each month for her separate stay and support. The agreement was a recorded document that mentioned some disputes and disagreements between the two parties. The Calcutta Supreme Court refused to consider the agreement as an agreement under this exception. The court found no evidence of affection between the parties whose disputes had forced them to separate. With this exception, it is necessary that the agreement be concluded with love and affection. a) A promises, without consideration, to give B. 1,000. It`s a no-deal. Systems based on Roman law (including Germany [22] and Scotland) do not need to be examined and some commentators feel that they are not necessary and have proposed abandoning the doctrine of reflection[23] and estoppel to replace it as the basis of the treaties.

[24] However, legislation, not judicial development, was seen as the only way to eliminate this entrenched doctrine. Lord Justice Denning said he was famous: “The doctrine of consideration is too firmly anchored to be toppled by a side wind.” [25] It is well established in English law and in the Indian Contract Act that review is indispensable for an enforceable contract. It is an act or abstinence by the promised or another person, at the request of the promisor. The reflection may have passed, future or executor. In accordance with the Indian Contract Act of 1872, the definition of consideration in section 2 d), reflection may be made by “the promisor or any other person” as long as it is done “at the request of the promisor.”
