Section 30 Indian Penal Code
Section 30 of the Indian Penal Code 1860 is about ”Valuable security”. It is under CHAPTER II (GENERAL EXPLANATIONS) of the Code.
The words “valuable security” denote a document which is, or purports to be, a document whereby any legal right is created, extended, transferred, restricted, extinguished or released, or whereby any person acknowledges that he lies under legal liability, or has not a certain legal right.
A writes his name on the back of a bill of exchange. As the effect of this endorsement is to transfer the right to the bill to any person who may become the unlawful holder of it, the endorsement is a “valuable security”.
