You yourself study and should derive the relevant introduction. This is not good to be dependant upon others while studying.

Specific performance means accomplishing a promise made under a contract which has been agreed. A specific performance suit can be filed by any party, in a court who has the competence, who has underwent loss due to non-performance of contract on the part of other party to the contract. 

In Specific Relief Act, 1963, Section 19(a) and (b) states that specific performance of a contract can be enforced against either party thereto and any person demanding under him by a title arising consequent to the contract, except a transferee for value, who has paid his money with good faith and without notice of the original contract.

Apart from this Section 15 of Specific Relief Act gives a thorough explaination for who can obtain a specific performance.

  • Specific performance is reasonable relief given to the plaintiff to enforce against the defendant, to perform the duty agreed by the contract both the parties.
  • This remedy is granted as an exception and therefore plaintiff has to satisfy that he incurred loss due to non- performance and that normal remedy is insufficient.
  • Section 15 of Specific relief act, 1963, specifies that any party or representative thereto expecting any earning skills, solvency or personal quality as material ingredient can sue for specific performance.
  • Section 19 states that specific performance can be imposed against either of the parties or any person acting as their representative and has interest in the title.
