When to use perjury?

What is correct time to use perjury in 498a case?

Is there any punishment for false statements, under oath, in court?

when do you have sufficeint proof that other party willfully concealed something which can cause gross injustice.

you should file before other party correct it.

yes court can impose punishment as well as fine.

Dear Simmi,

There are specific sections when somebody gives false statement before court under oath. It is punishable offence.

Does hiding age in 125 attract perjury ?

Rahul Kapoor (Legal Enthusiast)     29 May 2013

Perjury means lying under oath.

@ZEESHAN it depends on facts and circumstances of case.

go through the main ingredients of perjury then find out whether it will be fit in your case or not

Section 191 to 199 deals with false evidence and offences against public justice.  The punishment is upto 7 years. But depending upon gravity of the offence, it may differ from case to case.

1) Can a perjury case be filed DURING the trial of original case? Is it necessary that the perjury be identified/proved in the original case

2) What if there are strong evidences against FIR/chargesheet allegations? Can a perjury case be filed in parallel with the original case

Respected Members,

Many a time, cases u/s 138 N I Act, an application was filed in trial court  having false statement that cheque handed over as a blank cheque, and it should be sent for FSL test, just to delay the proceedings, whereas the post dated cheques duly filled up by accused in his own handwriting and along with a  signed letter of handing over cheques with cheques descripttion just like date, amount ,cheque no. , the  drawee bank name were given at the time of taking loan. Does this come in perjury as the application is not supported by any affidavit and there is no veryfication as in Affidavit  ?
