Re-examination under the Indian Evidence Act

August 7, 2023

Here are some key points related to re-examination under the Indian Evidence Act:

  1. Purpose: The main purpose of re-examination is to allow the party who called the witness to address any ambiguities, contradictions, or doubts that may have arisen during the cross-examination. It provides an opportunity to rehabilitate the witness’s testimony and to clarify any points that may have been challenged or misconstrued during cross-examination.
  2. Limited Scope: Re-examination is limited in scope and cannot cover new matters that were not touched upon during the examination-in-chief or cross-examination. Its purpose is to only address the issues that arose during the cross-examination.
  3. Leading Questions: Unlike examination-in-chief, leading questions (questions that suggest the answer) are generally allowed during re-examination. This is to enable the party to direct the witness’s attention to specific points or to elicit clear responses.
