“The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow.”- Bill Gates

As we all know that we live in an era where everything is digitalising and shifting toward electronic means and internet-based like E-mail, E-court & E-contract and many more. Just like that there is E-evidence which means electronic evidence or digital evidence a not so recognized term in the legal field but getting pace and usage with every new case coming up. So, through this paper, I will be discussing what is E-evidence?, its two subforms and its admissibility with reference to Indian Evidence Act 1872 and IT Act 2000.

I will be taking help from some case laws and judgment related to E-evidence and as well as focusing on the authentication of it and the concept of E-evidence in India.
