The Income Tax Appeal Tribunal (ITAT) ruled that if a corporation did not exist at the time the notice of assessment was issued, the decision would therefore be unfounded in the eyes of the law. Non est factum (Latin for “it is not [my] act”) is a defence in contract law that allows a signatory party to evade performance of an agreement “that is fundamentally different from what it intended to perform or sign.”  A no est factum means that the signature on the contract was signed by mistake without knowing its meaning. A plea obtained would result in the nullity of the contract from the outset.  The Tribunal, chaired by Vice-President Pramod Kumar, ruled that since the assessment decision was made by A.O u/s 143(3) r.w.s 144C(3) dated 25.05.2015 in the hands of M/s Satyam Computers Services Ltd., i.e. an entity that did not exist at the time the assessment decision was made, It would therefore not be the same in the eyes of the law.

The father was illiterate and signed the bank document believing that he was only acting as guarantor of the farm, although the contract actually applied to all of the son`s debts. As he was illiterate, this was a mistake concerning the signed document, and the father was able to successfully claim, non est factum. Because Mr. Ford was illiterate (although he was able to sign his name), suffered from a “significant congenital intellectual disability” and did not understand the details of the agreement or the consequences of non-payment, the judge concluded on appeal that he had always been his son`s pawn and that “his mind was just a channel. by whom his son`s will worked.”  Foster v. Mackinnon1 led to the development of the modern approach to non-east factum. The defendant was induced to sign the back of a bill of exchange, mistakenly believing that he was signing a guarantee. The rationale and essential aspects of this doctrine are best described by Byles J.A.: The same is true of the English Court of Appeal`s decision in Norwich & Peterborough Building Society v.
Steed (1993). In this case, A, the owner of property, signed a power of attorney authorizing his mother B to represent him in all matters during his stay in the United States. C, A`s sister, tricked mother B into signing a deed transferring ownership to C. In the present case, the mother argued that the transfer and subsequent charging of the land were void ab initio. From the evidence presented, it appeared that the mother had no opinion on the subject of the document and therefore did not err as to the nature or character of the document she had signed. The court went on to state that owner A had negligently appointed his mother B as a lawyer because she was manifestly unable to understand the legal meaning of the powers conferred on her by the power of attorney or the effects of signing the document transferring the property to her daughter. C! In Mathu v. Cherchi, the Supreme Court of Kerala ruled that the plea of no is factum was a capable person who was too busy to read the content and who had not exercised sufficient diligence unless he had been a victim of fraud.
In In re Beanev. 7. In December, the deceased, who had been suffering from advanced senile dementia for three years, had transferred a house to her eldest daughter, who was her only valuable possession. Her other two children requested that the transfer be cancelled on the grounds that the deceased`s mental state could not understand why she was giving her only valuables to her eldest daughter at all.

Ltd. in Hyderabad, the design and development of application systems and software should take over either for its own use, or for export. Each contract stems from a legally binding agreement between the parties that reflects the identity or reunion of the chiefs, commonly referred to by the Latin expression consensus ad idem. If one or both parties made a mistake in understanding an essential contractual clause, there would obviously be no consensus ad idem.
A general rule that makes such agreements categorically unenforceable may actually cause more problems than it is supposed to solve with impunity through blatant abuse of the rule.

One type of error that causes difficulties in the courts involves a party confusing the type of contract signed. Suppose a person signs the deed in a house and thinks that the signed document was just a guarantee of another person`s debt or a certificate of will as a witness. Under contract law, in such situations, the person who signed under the false impression of the nature of the document might be able to invoke a fact not is before the court and, on that basis, request the court`s assistance in circumventing the contract. The Latin expression non est factum literally means “it is not his act”. It is a special defense in contract law to allow a person to circumvent the provisions of a contract that he or she may have signed for certain reasons, such as a mistake about the nature of the contract.
