Business law-case on special contract

  • 1. BUSINESS LAW MARIE AMIRTHARAJ. F, MBA ‘A’.
  • 2. Case On Special Contract VidyaRatanvs. Kota Transport Co. Ltd. on 3 May, 1965.
  • 3.
  • 4. This cotton was carried in a gas plant truck No. 564.
  • 5.
  • 6. Accordingly the plaintiff demanded the value of the undelivered cotton from the defendant company, but as it did not care for the demandfiled the suit in the court of the Munsif, Kota.
  • 7.
  • 8. The defendant then went up in appeal to the District Judge, Lota. They came with 3 Conclutions, There was no privity of contract between the plaintiff and the defendant's company and as such the latter could not be sued by the plaintiff. The learned District Judge came to the conclusion that there was no negligence on the part of the defendant's driver and it was by chance that the goods caught fire and consequently the defendant company could not be held responsible for the same. The learned District Judge has held that the defendant was a common carrier, though in the present case its liability to pay the amount was limited by a special contract made by DhannaLal.
  • 9. Sections used in the case Section 2 of the Carriers Act, 1885 – A common carrier as a person, other than the Government, engaged in the business of transporting for hire property from place to place, by land or inland navigation, for all persons indiscriminately. Section 6 of the Carriers Act, 1885 – The liability of any common carrier for the loss of or damage to any property delivered to him to be carried is limited by special contract.
  • 10. Judgment The principles governing the liability of a common carrier as contained in the Carriers Act, 1865, could be invoked in the present case, as at the time the incident happened Carriers Act had not been extended to Rajasthan. In the case of a common carrier there need not be any privacy of contract between the consignee of the goods and the carrier. A consignee, who is the owner of the goods, can certainly sue the common carrier for non-delivery. So, The learned Judge reached the conclusion that the plaintiff could not sue the defendant for damages.
