THE INDIAN PARTNERSHIP
ACT’ 1932
Section.4 of the Indian Partnership Act, 1932 defines
Partnership in the following terms:
“ Partnership is the relation between persons who have agreed
to share the profits of a business carried on by all or any of
them acting for all.”
ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF A
PARTNERSHIP
a.) There must be a contract.
b.) Between two or more persons.
c.) Who agree to carry on business.
d.) With the object of sharing profits.
e.) The business must be carried on by all or any of them
acting for all.
KINDS OF PARTNERSHIP:
1.Partnership at will:
Where no provision is made by contract
between the partners for the duration of their
partnership, the partnership is ‘partnership at will.’
The essence of a partnership at will is that the
partners do not fix any term of partnership and are
free to break their relationship at their own sweet
will. It is a partnership for an indefinite period.
2. Particular partnership:
When a partnership is formed for a
particular period or for a particular venture,
it is called particular partnership. In such a
case, the partnership is automatically
dissolved at the expiry of the fixed term or
on the completion of the venture.
Rights of Partners
1.Right to take part in the conduct of the
business.
2. Right to be consulted.
3. Right to access the books.
4. Right to share the profits.
5. Right to interest on capital
6. Right to interest on advances.
7. Right to indemnity.
INCOMING AND OUTGOING
PARTNERS
No partner can be admitted as a partner into a
firm without the consent of all the existing
partners. Mutual trust and confidence among
the partners being an essential ingredient of an
ideal partnership, it is essential that here must
be a consent of all the partners.
Liability of an incoming partner
A new partner becomes liable for the debts and acts
of the firm only from the date he is admitted as a
partner.
He cannot be held liable for the acts of the old firm.
A new partner may, however, agree to be liable for
the debts existing prior to his admission but such
agreeing will not give to a prior creditor the right to
sue him because of absence of ‘privity of contract.’
Retirement of a Partner:
A Partner is said to retire when the surviving partners
continue to carry the business of the firm, and the
retiring member ceases to be a partner.
In case of ‘particular partnership’, a partner may
retire with the consent of all the other partners,
unless otherwise agreed. In case of ‘partnership at
will’, a partner may retire by giving a notice in writing
to all the other partners of his intention to retire,
unless otherwise agreed.
A retiring partner continues to be liable for the
acts of the firm done before his retirement. He
may, however, free himself from his liability
towards the third parties for the debts of the firm
incurred before his retirement by an agreement
with such third parties and the partners of the
reconstituted firm discharging the outgoing
partners from all liabilities. The remaining
partners alone cannot give this freedom to the
retiring partners. He may be discharged if the
creditors agree.
Expulsion of a Partner
A partner may be expelled from a firm by majority of the
partners only if:
a.) the power to expel has been conferred by contract
between the partners.
b.) such a power has been exercised in good faith for the
benefit of the firm.
The partner who has been expelled must be given
reasonable opportunity to explain his position and to
remove the cause of his expulsion.
Insolvency of a partner
When a partner in the firm is adjudicated as
insolvent, he ceases to be a partner on the date on
which the order of adjudication is made, whether or
not the firm is thereby dissolved will depend upon
the agreement of partnership between the partners.
The insolvent partner’s share in the firm’s assets will
be used for firm’s debts first and whatever remains
will be utilised for the insolvent partner’s personal
debts
Death of a Partner
Although on the death of a partner, the firm is
dissolved, but if the other partners so agree
the firm may not be dissolved. When a firm is
not dissolved, the estate of the deceased
partner is not liable for any acts of the firm
done after his death. No public notice of
death is required to relieve the deceased
partner’s estate from future obligations.
REGISTRATION OF FIRMS
Under the partnership Act, it is not compulsory for every partnership
firm to get itself registered. But an unregistered firm suffers from a
number of disabilities.
An application in the prescribed format along with the prescribed
fees has to be submitted to the Registrar of firms of the State in which
the place of business of the firm is situated. The application must be
signed by all the partners and must contain the following particulars:
a.) The name of the firm.
b.) The place of business of the firm.
c.) The names of any other places where the business of the firm is
carried on.
d.) The date when each partner joined the firm.
e.) The names in full and permanent addresses of the partners.
Effect of non registration
1.No suit in civil court by a partner against the firm or
other partners.
2. No suit in a civil court by a firm against the parties.
3. The firm or its partners cannot make a claim of set-
off or other proceeding based upon a contract.
Dissolution of the Firm
Section. 39 provides that the dissolution of partnership between all the
partners of a firm is called ‘dissolution of the firm.’
Modes of dissolution
A firm may be dissolved in any one of the following ways:
1.By Agreement:
2. By Notice
3. On the happening of certain contingencies
4. Compulsory Dissolution
5. Dissolution by the Court
1.By Agreement: A firm may be dissolved with the
consent of all the partners or in accordance with a
contract between the partners. Partnership is
created by a contract, it can also be terminated by
a contract.
2. By notice: Where the partnership is at will, the
firm may be dissolved by any partner giving the
notice in writing to all the other partners of his
intention to dissolve the firm. A notice of
dissolution once given cannot be withdrawn
without the consent of all the other partners.
3. On the happening of certain contingencies:
Subject to a contract between the partners, a firm
may be dissolved if:
a.) if constituted for a fixed term, by the expiry of
that term.
b.) If constituted to carry out one or more
adventures or undertakings, by the completion
thereof.
c.) By the death of the partner.
d.) By the adjudication of partner as an insolvent.
4. Compulsory Dissolution: A firm may be
compulsorily dissolved if:
a.) When all the partners, or all the
partners but one, are adjudged insolvent.
b.) When some event has happened which
makes it unlawful for the business of the firm
to be carried on.
5. Dissolution by the Court: Dissolution by the court
is necessitated when there is a difference of opinion
between the partners regarding the matter of
dissolution in cases of:
a.) Insanity
b.) Permanent Incapacity
c.) Misconduct
d.) Persistent breach of agreement
e.) Transfer of interest
f.) Just and Equitable

Indian partnership act, 1932

  • 1. THE INDIAN PARTNERSHIP ACT’ 1932 Section.4 of the Indian Partnership Act, 1932 defines Partnership in the following terms: “ Partnership is the relation between persons who have agreed to share the profits of a business carried on by all or any of them acting for all.”
  • 2. ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF A PARTNERSHIP a.) There must be a contract. b.) Between two or more persons. c.) Who agree to carry on business. d.) With the object of sharing profits. e.) The business must be carried on by all or any of them acting for all.
  • 3. KINDS OF PARTNERSHIP: 1.Partnership at will: Where no provision is made by contract between the partners for the duration of their partnership, the partnership is ‘partnership at will.’ The essence of a partnership at will is that the partners do not fix any term of partnership and are free to break their relationship at their own sweet will. It is a partnership for an indefinite period.
  • 4. 2. Particular partnership: When a partnership is formed for a particular period or for a particular venture, it is called particular partnership. In such a case, the partnership is automatically dissolved at the expiry of the fixed term or on the completion of the venture.
  • 5. Rights of Partners 1.Right to take part in the conduct of the business. 2. Right to be consulted. 3. Right to access the books. 4. Right to share the profits. 5. Right to interest on capital 6. Right to interest on advances. 7. Right to indemnity.
  • 6. INCOMING AND OUTGOING PARTNERS No partner can be admitted as a partner into a firm without the consent of all the existing partners. Mutual trust and confidence among the partners being an essential ingredient of an ideal partnership, it is essential that here must be a consent of all the partners.
  • 7. Liability of an incoming partner A new partner becomes liable for the debts and acts of the firm only from the date he is admitted as a partner. He cannot be held liable for the acts of the old firm. A new partner may, however, agree to be liable for the debts existing prior to his admission but such agreeing will not give to a prior creditor the right to sue him because of absence of ‘privity of contract.’
  • 8. Retirement of a Partner: A Partner is said to retire when the surviving partners continue to carry the business of the firm, and the retiring member ceases to be a partner. In case of ‘particular partnership’, a partner may retire with the consent of all the other partners, unless otherwise agreed. In case of ‘partnership at will’, a partner may retire by giving a notice in writing to all the other partners of his intention to retire, unless otherwise agreed.
  • 9. A retiring partner continues to be liable for the acts of the firm done before his retirement. He may, however, free himself from his liability towards the third parties for the debts of the firm incurred before his retirement by an agreement with such third parties and the partners of the reconstituted firm discharging the outgoing partners from all liabilities. The remaining partners alone cannot give this freedom to the retiring partners. He may be discharged if the creditors agree.
  • 10. Expulsion of a Partner A partner may be expelled from a firm by majority of the partners only if: a.) the power to expel has been conferred by contract between the partners. b.) such a power has been exercised in good faith for the benefit of the firm. The partner who has been expelled must be given reasonable opportunity to explain his position and to remove the cause of his expulsion.
  • 11. Insolvency of a partner When a partner in the firm is adjudicated as insolvent, he ceases to be a partner on the date on which the order of adjudication is made, whether or not the firm is thereby dissolved will depend upon the agreement of partnership between the partners. The insolvent partner’s share in the firm’s assets will be used for firm’s debts first and whatever remains will be utilised for the insolvent partner’s personal debts
  • 12. Death of a Partner Although on the death of a partner, the firm is dissolved, but if the other partners so agree the firm may not be dissolved. When a firm is not dissolved, the estate of the deceased partner is not liable for any acts of the firm done after his death. No public notice of death is required to relieve the deceased partner’s estate from future obligations.
  • 13. REGISTRATION OF FIRMS Under the partnership Act, it is not compulsory for every partnership firm to get itself registered. But an unregistered firm suffers from a number of disabilities. An application in the prescribed format along with the prescribed fees has to be submitted to the Registrar of firms of the State in which the place of business of the firm is situated. The application must be signed by all the partners and must contain the following particulars: a.) The name of the firm. b.) The place of business of the firm. c.) The names of any other places where the business of the firm is carried on. d.) The date when each partner joined the firm. e.) The names in full and permanent addresses of the partners.
  • 14. Effect of non registration 1.No suit in civil court by a partner against the firm or other partners. 2. No suit in a civil court by a firm against the parties. 3. The firm or its partners cannot make a claim of set- off or other proceeding based upon a contract.
  • 15. Dissolution of the Firm Section. 39 provides that the dissolution of partnership between all the partners of a firm is called ‘dissolution of the firm.’ Modes of dissolution A firm may be dissolved in any one of the following ways: 1.By Agreement: 2. By Notice 3. On the happening of certain contingencies 4. Compulsory Dissolution 5. Dissolution by the Court

Partnership is created by a contract, it can also be terminated by a contract. 2. By notice: Where the partnership is at will, the firm may be dissolved by any partner giving the notice in writing to all the other partners of his intention to dissolve the firm. A notice of dissolution once given cannot be withdrawn without the consent of all the other partners.
  • 17. 3. On the happening of certain contingencies: Subject to a contract between the partners, a firm may be dissolved if: a.) if constituted for a fixed term, by the expiry of that term. b.) If constituted to carry out one or more adventures or undertakings, by the completion thereof. c.) By the death of the partner. d.) By the adjudication of partner as an insolvent.
  • 18. 4. Compulsory Dissolution: A firm may be compulsorily dissolved if: a.) When all the partners, or all the partners but one, are adjudged insolvent. b.) When some event has happened which makes it unlawful for the business of the firm to be carried on.
  • 19. 5. Dissolution by the Court: Dissolution by the court is necessitated when there is a difference of opinion between the partners regarding the matter of dissolution in cases of: a.) Insanity b.) Permanent Incapacity c.) Misconduct d.) Persistent breach of agreement e.) Transfer of interest f.) Just and Equitable
