Future Goods

These are the goods which are not in existence at the time of making the contract of sale sec 2(6). The seller acquires such goods after the making of the contract of sale. Thus, the future goods are those which are to be acquired or produced by the seller after the contract of sale is made. As per sec 6(3) a sale initiated in case of future goods will operate as a contract of agreement to sell.


Note: A contract of future goods is always an agreement to sell, since the ownership of the goods cannot be transferred before the goods come into existence.
