Adv. Priya Lohakare

maintenance agreements are those types of agreements by which a person promises to maintain a suit in which he personally has no interest. The object of the maintenance agreement is to excite or inspire litigation. English law declares maintenance agreements as unenforceable and illegal whereas in India only those agreements which seem to be made for gambling, oppressing or injuring others by promoting impious litigation will not be enforced rest other maintenance agreements can, however, be enforced.
