Dear Sangeeth, the electronic documents such as e mails and articles collected from the net are having evidentiary value and nowadays the courts are admitting those electronic documents as evidence subject to the geniuness of the documents. TheIndian Evidence Act and Information Technology Act gives explanations for the electronic documents.
