This article discusses the various contractual clauses in joint venture agreements under Indian commercial laws. The joint venture structure is becoming increasingly popular in India due to its advantages. However, joint ventures can be complex and require careful drafting of agreements to avoid disputes. The article highlights key clauses such as the management and control clauses, confidentiality clauses, non-compete clauses, termination clauses, and shareholders' rights clauses. The article also discusses the importance of incorporating a severability clause to ensure that the enforceable clauses of the contract are saved in case of unenforceability of a clause. Henceforth, the article provides insight into the legal considerations for drafting effective joint venture agreements in India.
