    • In my view, the onus to verify whether the other party to the contract is eligible or not to enter into a contract is on the person itself while entering into the contract.

      Hence, a person must check whether the other person (with whom he is entering into the contract) is eligible to become a party of the contract (he should not be a Bankrupt, of Unsound mind or a Minor).

      In the present case, if the Dealer is failed to verify the ineligibility of Minor then the Loss shall be born by him; but if the Minor willfully cheats the Dealer and the Dealer can prove the matter (working Bonafide) then Minor should be guilty and punished accordingly.
