Law in 100 Words | Part 2 | Electronic Evidence (65B Basics)

  • The Certificate u/s 65B is not required to be on an affidavit.
  • Though normally to be filed along with the electronic record (print-out, USB drive, etc), it can be filed subsequently too, either as a supplementary chargesheet, or by resort to S.311/391 of the CrPC.
  • In Civil cases, the certificate can be brought on record subsequently by relying upon Order 18 Rule 17, Order 16 Rule 14 CPC r/w 151 of the CPC. (Also see Order 8 Rule 1A and Order 7 Rule 14 CPC) 
  • Objections relating to admissibility of electronic evidence should be taken promptly else they are taken to have been waived.
