In the current era, government contracts have gained a lot of attention. The wealth comes from the state. In the contemporary welfare state, the government's economic activities are growing, and it is increasingly taking on the role of the distributor of several benefits. When the government in India takes on the role of a welfare state, the issue of the administration's contractual duty always elicits a feeling of majority response. The state is subject to the law and is not allowed to break it. The question that emerges in this situation is whether the person who was harmed or damaged by a state action is entitled to compensation from the state.
