In Arjun Panditrao Khotkar v. Kailash Kushanrao, the Supreme Court of India held that the condition mentioned under Section 65B(4) of the Evidence Act (which is regarding giving particulars of any device involved in the production of that electronic record and certificate to be produced before the court) is essential for admissibility of electronic records. The supreme court further clarifies that it is not necessary to produce a certificate before a court of law if the ‘original document’ is produced itself. And in all other cases, the electronic record can go through according to the content of Section 65B(1) together with a certificate defined under Section 65B(4) FMWA of the Indian Evidence Act. WhatsApp forwarded message cannot be treated as evidence, it is even not regarded as a ‘document’ under the evidence act.
