Supreme Court Judgments on Cheating with Proprietary Element

Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code pertains to the offence of cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property that can be converted to valuable security. Supreme Court judgments have established the importance of distinguishing between cheating without proprietary element and cheating with proprietary element. This is because cheating without proprietary element attracts section 417 of IPC, not as 420.
