In a contract for supply of steel, excess amount has been paid to the supplier. He is not accepting the same.
What is legal way to recover the money?
Adv.R.P.Chugh (Advocate/Legal Consultant (firstname.lastname@example.org)) 20 March 2012
When any amount is paid by way of mistake the same is recoverable under section 72 of the Indian Contract Act, 1872. He would deny it, but you can always recover it, the law does not allow one person to enrich himself unjustly at the cost of another.
