According to Sec 182 defines an ‘Agent’ as “a person
employed to do any act for another or to represent another
in dealings with third person”. The person for whom such act
is done or who is represented is called the principal. The
relationship between the agent and the principal is called
“agency”
Principal Of Agency
Contracts of agency are based on two important principles,
namely:
 Whatever a person can do personally shall also be allowed
  to be done through an agent except in case of contracts
  involving personal services such as painting, marriage,
  singing, etc.
 He who does not act through a duly authorized agent does
  it by himself, i.e., the act of the agent are considered the
  acts of the principal (Sec. 226)
Who Can Be An Agent
 Any person who is of the age of majority according to the
  law to which he is subject and who is of sound mind, may
  an agent.
 The function of an agent is to bring his principal into
  connectional relations with third parties. The agent is
  merely a connecting link between the principal and third
  parties .
Difference Between An Agent And A
Servant

 Scope of authority: An agent can create a contractual
  relationship between the principal and third parties. But a
  servant cannot create contractual relationship between its
  employer and third parties.
 Remuneration:An agent receives commission for his services
  . A servant is generally paid wages or salary.
 On whose behalf: An agent may work for several principals
  at the same time. A servant can serve only one master at a
  time
 Control: An agent is not subject to direct control and
  supervision of the principal. He is often discretion. But a
  servant acts under the direct control and supervision of his
  master and must follow all his reasonable order.

 Liability of principal: The principal is liable for all the
  wrongful acts of his agent which are within the “scope of
  his authority.” But the master is bound by the wrongful acts
  of his servant if done in the course of servant’s
  employment.
Creation of Agency
                 Modes of creating contract of
                           Agency




      By express          By implied             By
      authority           authority         ratification



                          By holding
  By estoppels                                   By necessity
                              out
Agency Classification

1)   Express Agency (sec186) – A person may be appointed
     agent, either by word of mouth or by writing. No
     particular form is required for appointing an agent.

2) Implied Agency (sec187) - An agency which arises from
     the conduct, situation or relationships of parties.



.
 Agency by Estoppel (sec237) – When a person has by his
  conduct or statements induced others to believe that a
  certain person is his agent, he is estopped from
  subsequently denying it.

 Ex - A tells B that he is C’s agent, this he does in the
  presence of C and within his hearing. C does not object to
  the statement of A is actually not his agent. Later B makes a
  deal with A as agent of C. C shall be bound by this deal.
 Agency by holding out (sec189) – Though part of the law
  of estoppel, some affirmative conduct by the principal is
  necessary in creation of agency by holding out.

 Ex - A child purchase goods from a shop and desires the
  shopkeeper to collect payment from his parents later. The
  parents, though not bound to pay, make the payment. After
  a few days, the child again makes purchases from the shop
  on the credit of the parents. The parents would be bound
  this time because, by making payment earlier without
  raising any objection, they had held their child out as their
  agent for making such purchases.
 Agency of necessity (sec189) - This arises where there is
  no express or implied appointment of a person as agent for
  another but he is forced to act on behalf of a particular
  person.

 Ex - A horse was sent by rail at the destination it was not
  taken delivery by the owner. The station master had to feed
  the horse. Held, station master became the agent by
  necessity and hence the owner must compensate him.
3) Agency by ratification (sec197)– Where an agent does
    an act     for his principal but without knowledge or
    authority or       where he exceeds the given authority,
    the principal is not held bound by the transaction.
 Ex - L made an offer to X, MD of a company. X accepted
  the offer though he had no authority to do so. L
  subsequently withdrew the offer, but the company ratified
  X’s acceptance.
Held – L was bound. The ratification related back to the
time X accepted the offer, thus rendering the revocation of
the    offer inoperative. An offer once accepted cannot be
withdrawn.

ANOTHER CLASSIFICATION OF AGENT
1) General
2) Special
 Right to remuneration(Sec 219-220) :- An agent is entitled to his
  agreed commission or remuneration and if there is no agreement,
  to a reasonable remuneration.[Sheikh Farid Baksh v. Hasgulal
  Singh A.I.R (1937) ALL 46]
 However, an agent who is guilty of misconduct in the business of
  agency is not entitled to any remuneration in respect of that part
  of the business which he has misconducted. (Sec 220)
 Right of Retainer(Sec 217) :- This is also known as agent’s right
  of retainer. It can only be claimed on money received by him in
  the business of the agency. He can not therefore, retain, sums
  received by him in one business for his commission or
  remuneration in other business on behalf of the same principle.
 Rights of Lien(Sec 221) :- In the absence of any contract to      the
       contrary, an agent is entitled to retain goods, papers, and other
       property, whether movable or immovable of the principal
       received by him until the amount due to himself for commission,
       disbursement, and services in respect of the same has been paid
       or accounted for to him.

 Right of stoppage-in-transit :- This right is available to agent in the
       following two cases:-
i.    Where he has purchased goods with his own funds or by incurring
      personal liability. Like an unpaid seller, he enjoys the right of
      stopping the goods in transit if in the meantime the principle has
      become insolvent.
ii.   Where he holds himself liable for the price of goods sold for
      example, del credere agent, he may exercise the unpaid seller’s
      right of stopping the goods in transit in case at buyer's insolvency.

     Right of Indemnification(Sec 222-224) :- The principal is bound to
      indemnify an agent against the consequences of all lawful acts
      done by the agent in exercise of authority conferred upon him. (Sec
      222)
Example :- B, at Singapore, under instruction from A of Calcutta,
contracts with C to deliver certain goods to him. A does not send the
goods to B, and C sues B for breach of contract. B informs A of the
suit, and A authorizes him to defend the suit. B defends the suit, and
is compelled to pay damages and costs, and incurs expenses. A is
liable to B for such damages, costs and expenses.

According to Sec 224 an agent can not claim indemnification for a
criminal act, even though the principal had agreed to do so.
Example :- A employs B to beat C, and agrees to indemnify him
  against all consequences of that act. B thereupon beats C and has pay
  damages to C for so doing. A is not liable to indemnify B for those
  damages.

 Right to Compensation for injury caused by principal’s neglect (Sec
  225) :- The principal must make compensation to his agent in respect
  of injury caused to such agent by the principal’s neglect or want of
  skill.
  Example :- A employs B as a bricklayer in building a house, and puts
  up the scaffolding himself. The scaffolding is unskillfully put up, and B
  is in consequence hurt. A must make compensation to B.

    principal’s directions (Section 211)
    Lilley v. Doubleday (1881)
2) The Agent should conduct the business with the skill
    and diligence that is generally possessed by persons
    engaged in similar business, except where the
    principal knows that Agent in wanting the skill (Section
    212)
    e.g. Where a lawyer proceeds under a wrong section and
    thereby the case is lost, he shall be liable for the loss.
3) To render proper accounts (Section 213)
     Rendering account does not mean showing the account
    supported by the vouchers (Anand prashad v.
    Dwarkanath)
4) In cases of difficulty to communicate with the
    principal (Section 214)
5) Not to make any secret profits
6) Not to deal on his own account
7) Agent not entitled to remuneration for business
    misconducted

    no remuneration for his services, and must make good
    the loss.

Contract of agency

  • 1. Presented By Group 10 : Sudhir Singh Rajput Arun Joshi Yatish Mittal Amit Yadav Vikrant Arora
  • 2. According to Sec 182 defines an ‘Agent’ as “a person employed to do any act for another or to represent another in dealings with third person”. The person for whom such act is done or who is represented is called the principal. The relationship between the agent and the principal is called “agency”
  • 3. Principal Of Agency Contracts of agency are based on two important principles, namely:  Whatever a person can do personally shall also be allowed to be done through an agent except in case of contracts involving personal services such as painting, marriage, singing, etc.  He who does not act through a duly authorized agent does it by himself, i.e., the act of the agent are considered the acts of the principal (Sec. 226)
  • 4. Who Can Be An Agent  Any person who is of the age of majority according to the law to which he is subject and who is of sound mind, may an agent.  The function of an agent is to bring his principal into connectional relations with third parties. The agent is merely a connecting link between the principal and third parties .
  • 5. Difference Between An Agent And A Servant  Scope of authority: An agent can create a contractual relationship between the principal and third parties. But a servant cannot create contractual relationship between its employer and third parties.  Remuneration:An agent receives commission for his services . A servant is generally paid wages or salary.  On whose behalf: An agent may work for several principals at the same time. A servant can serve only one master at a time
  • 6.  Control: An agent is not subject to direct control and supervision of the principal. He is often discretion. But a servant acts under the direct control and supervision of his master and must follow all his reasonable order.  Liability of principal: The principal is liable for all the wrongful acts of his agent which are within the “scope of his authority.” But the master is bound by the wrongful acts of his servant if done in the course of servant’s employment.
  • 7. Creation of Agency Modes of creating contract of Agency By express By implied By authority authority ratification By holding By estoppels By necessity out
  • 8. Agency Classification 1) Express Agency (sec186) – A person may be appointed agent, either by word of mouth or by writing. No particular form is required for appointing an agent. 2) Implied Agency (sec187) - An agency which arises from the conduct, situation or relationships of parties. .
  • 9.  Agency by Estoppel (sec237) – When a person has by his conduct or statements induced others to believe that a certain person is his agent, he is estopped from subsequently denying it.  Ex - A tells B that he is C’s agent, this he does in the presence of C and within his hearing. C does not object to the statement of A is actually not his agent. Later B makes a deal with A as agent of C. C shall be bound by this deal.
  • 10.  Agency by holding out (sec189) – Though part of the law of estoppel, some affirmative conduct by the principal is necessary in creation of agency by holding out.  Ex - A child purchase goods from a shop and desires the shopkeeper to collect payment from his parents later. The parents, though not bound to pay, make the payment. After a few days, the child again makes purchases from the shop on the credit of the parents. The parents would be bound this time because, by making payment earlier without raising any objection, they had held their child out as their agent for making such purchases.
  • 11.  Agency of necessity (sec189) - This arises where there is no express or implied appointment of a person as agent for another but he is forced to act on behalf of a particular person.  Ex - A horse was sent by rail at the destination it was not taken delivery by the owner. The station master had to feed the horse. Held, station master became the agent by necessity and hence the owner must compensate him.
  • 12. 3) Agency by ratification (sec197)– Where an agent does an act for his principal but without knowledge or authority or where he exceeds the given authority, the principal is not held bound by the transaction.  Ex - L made an offer to X, MD of a company. X accepted the offer though he had no authority to do so. L subsequently withdrew the offer, but the company ratified X’s acceptance. Held – L was bound. The ratification related back to the time X accepted the offer, thus rendering the revocation of the offer inoperative. An offer once accepted cannot be withdrawn.
