The terminology “admissibility" refers to the act of admitting or acknowledging any sort of evidence in a court of law. As per the provisions of the Indian Evidence Act, of 1872 (hereinafter referred to as "Act"), the term "evidence" means any statement or proof whether written or oral, accepted by the court for the purpose of an ongoing lawsuit. Therefore, admissibility or acceptance of any sort of evidence refers to a written document or oral statement for reaching a conclusion in a court hearing. Section 17 of the act defines the terminology “admission" which in a literal sense refers to the act of admittance, acknowledgment, or the power to access or approach. As per the provisions of Section 3 of the act, facts or statements are presented before the court to support a claim made by one party against the competing party in a lawsuit. In general interpretation, evidence means an admission of any type of proof to make a valid lawful point in the court proceeding (Field, 2023). The report will discuss the basic fundamental conditions of admissibility of evidence in a trial session or court hearing. Furthermore, different types of shreds of evidence as well as general principles governing the concept of admission will be discussed too. A brief description of the lawful concept of admissibility of evidence within the concept of international arena along with a few case laws implications will be provided in the report.
