Sec 57 Reciprocal promises - legal and illegal

Where parties make reciprocal promises to each other, firstly, to do certain things which are legal, and secondly, to do certain other things which are illegal, the first set of promise is a contract and the second is void.



Suresh and Ramesh agree that Suresh shall sell a house to Ramesh for ₹ 10,000 but if Ramesh uses it for gambling, he shall pay ₹ 50,000. The first set of reciprocal promise is legal and hence valid and enforceable and on the other hand the send set of reciprocal promise is unenforceable and hence void.
