Drishti Rathi, Christ (Deemed To Be University)


Property Law is a very vital segment of law. It plays a very important role in the daily activities of the people. Therefore, this case Sona Bala Bora V Jyotirindra Bhatacharjee is a landmark case of Property law which has an essence of the Contract law in it. The case at hand is a dispute regarding a sale of a property. This sale was believed to have been done when Mr. Bhogirath (husband of the appellant) was in an unstable state of mind but his medical reports of the tests conducted before the signing of the sale deed by the defendant of the case showed otherwise. The judges interpreted Section 7 of the Transfer of Property Act, 1882 and the Section 11 of the Indian Contract Act, 1872. The judges, in this case, made a vital interpretation on the meaning of unsound state of mind which proved to be a beneficial judgment in the future. This judgment has been often cited in several cases such as Madhu Ranjan vs. Shruti Sharma on 16th January 2015, Charanjit Singh vs. Chattranjan Pal and Others on 20 September, 2011, Sh. Devi Dutt Tyagi vs Sh. Kundan Lal (Since Deceased) on 17 August, 2016 and so on.
