As a result of technology growth and development, daily life has changed enormously. Technology that increasingly relies on electronic communications, business, and information storage in digital form can be used to communicate easily. Such technological upsurge and development have a major system on legal rules, particularly in the field of evidence. This modern technology has produced and developed evidence in the courts. It resulted in the necessity of transforming the information technology law and electronic evidence admissibility rules in both civil and criminal matters. This paper seeks to revise the laws of digital evidence and its admissibility and relevance while appreciating different issues relating to jurisprudence. In addition, with amendments to electronic evidence, the principles of the evidence act were explained. In relation to the admissibility of electronic evidence, several decisions of the Indian Supreme Court have been cited. Finally, safeguards and procedures for processing electronic procedure which should be adopted by the Indian judiciary.
