Riddhi Mukewar & Pooja K, B.B.A. LL.B, Symbiosis Law School, Nagpur


The purpose of this research article is to understand the nature and scope of Section 29 of the Indian Evidence Act 1872. This article showcases how Section 29 of the Act contradicts certain provisions Indian Penal Code and Criminal Procedure Code. A Confession becomes admissible if it passes the test of section 24-28 and Section 29 encompasses certain situations in which confessions which are otherwise relevant will not become irrelevant. This article attempts to understand the said provision of Indian Evidence with the help of various cases and concludes that the provision is legally relevant but fails to be logically relevant. We conclude that the main aim of judiciary in criminal cases is administering justice to the aggrieved and solving the crime. We say that, no innocent person should be punished for the actions of the wrong doer.
