Practical Problems_Contract Act_84

A promised to pay B for his services at his (A) sole discretion which found to be fair and reasonable. However, B dissatisfied with the payment made by A and wanted to sue him. Decide whether B can sue A under the provisions of Indian Contract Act, 1872?

B’s suit will not be valid because the performance of a promise is contingent upon the mere will and pleasure of the promisor; hence, there is no contract. As per section 29 of the Indian Contract Act, 1872 – agreements, the meaning of which is not certain, or capable of being made certain, are void”.
