Certification is Key: Simply presenting screenshots of WhatsApp conversations in court is not enough.

Evidence Act Rules Apply:  For chats to be considered valid evidence, they need a certificate following the Indian Evidence Act, 1872.

Focus on Authenticity: The certificate verifies the legitimacy of the WhatsApp chat content.

Beyond Screenshots:  Screenshots alone don't fulfill the requirement for digital evidence.

Procedure Matters:  Following the proper procedure ensures the court can accept your digital evidence.

Fairness in Court: This ruling upholds fair judicial processes by guaranteeing proper documentation and verification of digital evidence.

Accuracy Matters:  Certification helps to minimize the risk of manipulated or fabricated digital evidence.

 Think Before Submitting:  Ensure your WhatsApp chat evidence is accompanied by the necessary certificate before presenting it in court.
