The legislature must amend the evidence Act for justice

Bhutan’s legal landscape in private law pertaining to agreements must be transformed, particularly with the enactment of the Contract Act in 2013. This Act is derived primarily from the Indian Contract Act of 1872 and the Restatement (Second) of Contracts from the United States both in substance and formulation. This Act would suit well in emerging issues arising from private contractual disputes. However, there are some serious challenges as it contradicts the Evidence Act 2005.
