whta is the procedure of taking oath in courts

(Querist) 22 August 2008 This query is : Resolved 
can any one tell me that what is the procedure of taking oath in the court,
is it that the same holy book is used for people from every religion or it depends upon that to which religion he belongs to????/
praveen kumar (Expert) 22 August 2008
Dear Sir,
While administering oath to a witness, in the court, the judge asks the witness to say"In the name of God(or Allah)I swear that whatever I will say, will be trith, nothing but truth ,may God help me.
The Holy books are not used.

I swear in the name of God or Allah or Misiha or any form .......
I affirm that I will tell the truth nothing but truth ......
As sri said NO may God help me. Where is that place. Just for curiosity how things are going on under the Oaths Act.
