Good Faith under IPC

May 6, 2023
Statue of Lady Justice

In criminal law, the term “good faith” has a very specific meaning. Its meaning is entirely different from asserting that the person in question genuinely believed what was said to be true. In this regard, see the law’s text. It begins with a negative tone, excluding all but what is permitted to be present within its amplitude.

 The emphasis in the definition’s first phrase, “nothing is said to be done or believed in good faith,” is that the only action falling under the definition of “good faith” is one that is carried out with “due care and attention.” The meanin of due care and attention depends upon facts and circumstances of each case.
