Can one party use the evidence of the other party?

 In a civil case can the defendant use the evidence produced by the Plaintiff against him? is it allowed?

Section 21 of the Evidence Act, 1872 provides that admissions are relevant and may be proved as against the person who makes them, or his representative in interest. So, any evidence led by a party may be used against that party by the opponent.

i agree with view expressed by Mr. Praveen

only admission could be used by the either side.

Accourdiong to what I have searched, an admission is a statement, oral or documentary which suggests any inference as to any fact in issue or relevant fact, and which is made by any of the persons and under the circumstances hereinafter mentioned.
