Dear Ms.Shreya,

Whatever can be done by consent, can be UNDONE by consent as well. The Contract act allows the parties to replace the old contract with a new one. This is called novation of the contract. Other parties can also be added in the same as long as original parties agree. For more information - see : S.62 of the Indian Contract Act
