Your query is not clear but what I could understand is that you want to know if Facebook chat is acceptable as evidence in Courts. As far as quasi-judicial court are concerned such as Consumer Courts, Labour Courts, Real Estate Regulatory Authority etc, documents like these are acceptable as evidence as Indian Evidence Act is not strictly applicable to these forums and Commissions. However , in District Courts such as Court of JMIC or CJM or Civil Judge, Add District Judge, District Judge etc, these documents will be evidence only if they meet the standard of Indian Evidence Act and not otherwise.
