offense for submitting false affidavit to enter a contract

Management Consultant & Social Reformer

I had entered a partnership contract with a person running a small firm . An affidavit was asked by me that he was a sole proprietor and that no other partner existed and there are no undisclosed liabilities other than in accompanying balance sheet 

Later it was found that existence of a partner was hidden by hime, against whom he took injunction not to interefere and then entered with me.

After FIR was filed he was convicted u/s 406,420 and 193 IPC. But session judge acquitted saying  193 not applicable as court did not complain about affifavit.

What is punishment for  furnishing false afidavit to any body for any benefit or entering a contract. People keep giving affidavits to customs department, apssport offcie and others  and various agencies. 

What eaxctly is offnse and covered under which section of IPC.

I have been summoned being complainant

State appeal against acquittal is pending in high court and has come uo for hearing now
