relations, an offer, assent, substantial thought (benefits given to the other contracting party) and
capability (a capacity to make contract). The parties in the agreement gain rights and obligations
to the other party. However this does not imply that if both parties are expecting reasonable
profits they have to be equivalent. It is additionally vital to realize that the existence of the

service at a value lower than the market price, that individual can't go to court and demand the
balance. A pledge to give somebody a gift is enforceable in law because of absence of shared
trade consideration however only when the agreement executed in a stipulated structure called
