Breach of Contract under Pakistan’s Civil Law: What to Do

Contracts are a fundamental part of our daily lives, whether we realize it or not. They govern various transactions, from employment agreements to property sales. But what happens when a contract is broken? In Pakistan’s civil law, this is referred to as a ‘breach of contract’, and the Contract Act of 1872 provides remedies for such situations.

A breach of contract occurs when one party fails to fulfill their obligations as per the contract terms. This can be a ‘minor breach’, where the contract can still be fulfilled despite the breach, or a ‘material breach’, where the breach fundamentally undermines the contract’s purpose.

In Pakistan, if a contract is breached, the wronged party can seek legal remedies such as damages (compensation for loss), specific performance (court order to fulfill the contract), or rescission (cancellation of the contract).

However, pursuing a breach of contract claim can be complex. It requires proving the existence of a valid contract, demonstrating that the contract was breached, and showing that this breach caused quantifiable harm.
