The Indian Contract Act is the foundational law of governance of contracts in India. The law does lay out the essentials and various other provisions of a contract. However, there are certain shortcomings in this law. The twenty-first century has brought with it a revolution in technology. This revolution has permeated the contracts as well. E-contracts are becoming popular. However, the contract law in India has on several occasions, proved to be inefficient for providing a regulatory framework for e-contracts. This article is a study of the basics of e-contracts and the challenges faced by e-contracts in India. It also makes a study of various cases developed with respect to this subject.
