is Voice recording a evidence or not

an employee has been
discontinued from his services . He has voive recording of his management /authority regarding resignation based on baseless grounds. Kindly suggest whether this voive recording is admissible in court or not.

Yes it is admissable with lot of riders attached to it.

  • Where the voice has been denied by the maker it will require very strict proof to determine whether or not it was really the voice of the speaker.
  • The accuracy of the tape-recorded statement has to be proved by the maker of the record by satisfactory evidence— direct or circumstantial.
  • Every possibility of tampering with or erasure of a part of a tape-recorded statement must be ruled out otherwise it may render the said statement out of context and, therefore, inadmissible.
  • The statement must be relevant according to the rules of Evidence Act.
