EStoppel by conduct and the Doctrine of Election are intertwined.When a person by his express or implied act or omission makes another to do a particular act and suffer a detriment,the person who does such an act is bound by the Doctrine of Estoppel by conduct and he cannot go against the same and plead otherwise.He will be estopped from doing do. This doctrine is applicable both in civil and criminal cases. But it cannot be pleaded against statutes since it is well settled that there can be no estoppel against statutes.
