The Indian Contract Act 1872, is very vast and diverse in nature with several peculiarities and exceptions. It is immensely important for not only the Law Students and Academicians to have profound knowledge about the same but the entire society should have a general idea since Contracts play an integral role in our day to day life and Contracts are omnipresent and cannot be warded off easily. Among the many interesting things comprising in this act, the Author here wishes to focus on one of the very significant feature covered in the Sec.3 of the Act which explains us about the importance of acceptance of offer as compared to the acceptance in Ignorance of offer. The author wishes to explain this through the landmark judgement of Lalman Shukla v. Gauri Dat.
