Judgments on Doctrine of Promissory Estoppel

Saturday, February 26, 2011
Doctrine of Promissory Estoppel

Doctrine of Promissory Estoppel — The doctrine of Promissory Estoppel is an equitable remedy and has to be moulded depending on the facts of each case and not straight jacketed into pigeon holes — In other words, there cannot be any hard and fast rule for applying the doctrine of Promissory Estoppel but the doctrine has to evolve and expand itself so as to do justice between the parties and ensure equity between the parties i.e. both the promissor and the promisee.

Doctrine of Promissory Estoppel

Doctrine of Promissory Estoppel — In cases where the Government on the basis of material available before it, bona fide, is satisfied that public interest would be served by granting, withdrawing, modifying or rescinding an exemption already granted, it should be allowed a free hand to do so — Doctrine of promissory estoppel in such cases will not be applicable.
