dating in usa delhi - Effect of backdating

The first and most important thing to note about the consequences of backdating a document is that it is potentially a criminal offence.When we say “backdating” what we usually mean is executing a document and then dating it with an earlier date than the actual date of execution, with the intention that it should be treated as giving rise to legal rights before the actual date.For obvious reasons, any request to backdate a document for these reasons should be flatly turned down.

It should be made clear in the document that notwithstanding it being entered into on the date of execution by the parties, it is to take effect from a date in the past.
