Evidence Act (1 of 1872) , S.115—
There is a distinction between 'issue estoppel' and 'res judicata'. Res judicata debars a Court from exercising its jurisdiction to determine the lis if it has attained finality between the parties whereas the doctrine of issue estoppel is invoked against the party. If such an issue is decided against him, he would be estopped from raising the same in the latter proceeding. The doctrine of res judicata creates a different kind of estoppel viz. Estoppel by Accord.(Para 30)
