WHETHER PHONE CALLS RECORDING ARE VALID EVIDENCE IN COURT AND WILL IT SUPPORT YOUR CASE?

WHETHER PHONE CALLS RECORDING ARE VALID EVIDENCE IN COURT AND WILL IT SUPPORT YOUR CASE?

Simple answer is YES! – Conditions are laid down in Ram Singh & Ors vs Col. Ram Singh. (1973) 1 SCC 471, (1970) 2 SCC 340, 1985 Supp SCC 611.

First of all let me tell you that all the electronic evidences such as calls recording, video clips etc. are covered under section 65B of Indian Evidence Act. Thus, in a case where a person has such evidences to prove their case, he may easily bring those evidences in record through legal counsel before the Hon’ble Court.

- WHEN THERE IS NO DOCUMENT AS PROOF BUT ONLY CALLS RECORDING IN CASE OF MONEY LENDING.

There are cases where people say that they have lent money to other person but they do not have any proof. In such cases also call recordings will help a lot. You can call that person and in a way or another try to record his statements. If he admits his liability or makes such statements where he admits that he has borrowed money e.g. he says that he needs some time to return the borrowed money, tries to arrange a meeting for settling the issue etc. then these recordings can be used as an evidence/ proof and case can be initiated on the basis of these call recordings.

Apart from money lending issue, in other issues also call recordings can be useful e.g. in fraud & cheating cases, bank frauds, digital tracking records, cyber-crime issues, MACT cases, sexual harassment cases, office disputes issues, employer-employee issues, threats, bribe & corruption cases and it’s a never ending list. Thus, call recordings can be very useful evidence to support your case.

Calls recording (if proved authentic and genuine) can make you win your case! People generally do not understand the usefulness of electronic evidences thus this post is to make people aware about the usefulness of electronic evidence.
