These are just a few types of clauses that may appear in contracts. Some are standard in company agreements, such as arbitration clauses and confidentiality clauses. Others are adapted to certain situations, such as clauses relating to the scope of work to be sold or goods and payment information. Although some boilerplate clauses may look the same, they can have a markedly different legal effect. The general rule is that the entire clause of the contract excludes the parties from proving orally the terms of the contract1, since the parties have expressed, through the entire clause of the agreement, their intention that the document contain all the conditions of their agreement2, which supports the rule of parol proof provided for in section 92 of the Indian Evidence Act. 1872 (“IEA”) 3. There are, however, some exceptions to this general rule. If the contract does not contain all the conditions between the parties and the contract remains silent with regard to the other conditions, the parties may provide oral evidence of their negotiations to help interpret or supplement the contract4. However, these other conditions must not be contrary to the written contract.5 In addition, extrinsic evidence may lead to the declaration of ambiguities as to the front of the contract, but not in cases where the terms of the treaty are clear.6 However, whatever the nature of the clause contained in a contract, the clause is applicable only: if it is not contrary to the legislation in force. The limitation clause is a good example; Courts may be reluctant to impose a clause that deprives a party of rights.
