This query is : Resolved
I understand that electronically generated computer documents/ reports do not require to be signed manually. Is it valid legally? What about legal validity of e-mails? Please throw some light on the relevant provisions of the Legislation/ Act that covers this topic.

EMAILS ARE FORM OF COMMUNICATION, THE SOURCE OF ORIGIN AND END RECIPIENT CAN BE LOCATED, UNDER SUCH CASES, EMAIL CAN BE CONSIDERED AS A VALID DOCUMENT.
THE BEST EXAMPLE WOULD BE THE COMPLAIN MAILS THAT CONSUMER SENDS TO THE SERVICE PROVIDER/MANUFACTURER/COMPANY FROM WHOM THE CONSUMER HAS BOUGHT THE PRODUCT.
THERE ARE CERTAIN DOCUMENTS, WHICH WHEN SUBMITTED ELECTRONICALLY CANNOT BE ACCEPTED, FOR EXAMPLE IRREVOCABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY BY A INDIAN CITIZEN CITIZEN IN UAE, IN FAVOR OF ANOTHER INDIAN CITIZEN IN INDIA. UNDER ABOVE CIRCUMSTANCE THERE IS A NEED OF CERTAIN CERTIFICATION REQUIRED IN REGARDS TO THE AFFIDAVIT DRAWN BY THE INDIAN CITIZEN RESIDING IN UAE IN FAVOR OF THE INDIAN CITIZEN
