In India, an agreement or a contract with a minor a person who is below the age of 18 yrs. According to courts opinion, any person who is below 18 yrs of age or who has not completed the age of 18 yrs.
This case has basically provided us with the knowledge that, since minors are legally incompetent to give their assent so they need to deserve or be provide with the protection in their dealings with the other major persons. After this caseany sought of contact or agreement with the minor was void from beginning.
Such contracts are "void ab-initio". Section 10of Indian Contact Act, provides for what agreements are contracts? He was a minor i. Brahmo Dutta, he was a minor and he secured this mortgage deed for Rs.

It is a law that was enacted to introduce various laws relating to the "law of majority". Prior to the enactment of this act, there was no surety or certainty about the age limit of attaining majority.
This act has basically fixed the age limit of attaining majority and i. It states that, every single person who is domiciled in India can only achieve the age of majority only after the completion of age of 18 years, and not before that at any cost.
There comes an exception in the case were any particular personal law provides the age of attaining majority only and if not provided than, else any person domiciled by India shall only achieve majority after the completion of 18 years of age. In the case were the guardian or a custodian is appointed by any court of justice for a minor in case of a person or his property or for both before the age of 18 years, then in such a case the age of majority would be after attaining the age of 21 years instead of attaining 18 years of age.

This perception is correct because minor or infant comes in the category of such people who cannot give there free consent along with the reason that they are not in a situation where they can think in a manner in which a prudent or an ordinary person could do it.

The court also through its verdict has propounded that, a contact with an infant shall be declared null and void it means that it is neither valid nor voidable. According to me, minors contract shall be avoided and stopped because it sometimes lead to the harmful social, economic and legal effects on the lives and conditions of the minors.
Any such person who commits such offence shall be strictly punished by court of law, either through imprisonment or with a fine or with both according to the ambit of the offence committed by the major person.
Any agreement with an infant cannot be administered against them. In cases minors parents or custodians shall not be liable for the dealings done by the minor without their consent or knowledge, and hence they will not be liable to return the amount back taken by the minor out of the moral obligations.
The party rescinding a voidable contract if has received any benefit thereunder from the another party to such contract, restore such benefitto the person from whom it was received.By Palak Verma, Amity University.
