Section 124 of the Indian Contract Act defines it as “a contract by which one party promises to save the other from loss caused to him by the conduct of the promisor himself or by the conduct of any other person”. The person who promises is called the Indemnifier and the person to whom the promise is made is called the Indemnified or Indemnity Holder.
Illustration: A promises not to construct buildings on a particular site so as to prevent light and air to B’s house and in case of breach of such promise, to indemnify for the consequent loss.
This is a contract of indemnity. A contract of insurance is also a contract of indemnity.
