Report No. 28
27. Question of retention of special oaths considered.-The question for consideration, is, whether the provisions relating to special oaths1 and the conclusive nature of the evidence given on special oath as contained in sections 8 to 12 of the Indian Oaths Act, 1873, should be retained or repealed. Arguments may be advanced for the retention as well as f6r the repeal of these provisions. On, a careful consideration of the arguments for and against these provisions, we are of the opinion, that the provisions relating to special oaths should be omitted from our statute book.
