wedding card through email....
Hi sir, one of my friend send his Marriage Wedding card (Personal card) through e-mail attachment..
Here my question was can we take email wedding card as Legal document for further necessary actions?

Cyber Law========= all e documents are recognised in evidence as good as any other document. Indian Evidence Act was also amended in line with it
From India
Yes, Email Proofs are legally valid in Courts,
Please go through section 65B of Indian Evidence Act, 1872
65B. Admissibility of electronic records -

165B. Admissibility of electronic records.- (1) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Act, any information contained in an electronic record which is printed on a paper, stored, recorded or copied in optical or magnetic media produced by a computer (hereinafter referred to as the computer output) shall be deemed to be also a document, if the conditions mentioned in this section are satisfied in relation to the information and computer in question and shall be admissible in any proceedings, without further proof or production of the original, as evidence of any contents of the original or of any fact stated therein of which direct evidence would be admissible

Dear All
Section 65 B of the Indian Evidence Act referred to in this thread contains several conditions subject to which the output of a computer could be taken in as evidence. This has to be kept in mind while dealing with electronic records.
With regards

Dear V.Harikrishnan,
Thanks for your input. I have clearly mentioned that electronic records like emails/data etc. can be taken as secondary evidence and not as primary evidence. Certain conditions needs to be fulfilled to take electronic records as evidence.
Mr Prashant B Ingawale has just done copy paste of the act without going into necessary subject required to accept electronic records as evidence.
I would request all members plz have a study of the subject before giving their inputs.

Dear Mr. Kamal,
Request you to throw light on e-mail attachments being accepted as secondary proof. For example, if payslips shared from official email id of a person to the HR of a company where he/she is seeking employment, where the payslips are shared as a PDF Attachment or HTML attachment or as a screenshot pasted on a word document, will those attachments be accepted as proof according to the IT Act enacted in 2000. Please clarify & Thanks in advance.
