 State the meaning of bailment.

Ans : when one person transfers  the possession of some goods to another person for a particular period and a particular purpose on the condition that, when the purpose is accomplished, these goods will be returned  or disposed off, it is called bailment. The person who delivered goods, is called bails. According to section 148 “A bailment is the delivery of goods by some person to another for some purpose, upon a contract that they shall when the purpose is accomplished, be returned or otherwise disposed of according to the directions of the persons delivering them.”

Example : You go to college and put your bicycle at stand. You pay certain certain charges and get your bicycle back while returning from college. This is a bailment. (ii) You lend your book to your friend for three days. This is a bailment.

Q3. Is the money deposited and valuables put in bank locker, a bailment ?

Ans : (a) Bank Deposit and Bailment : Bank deposit does not amount to bailment, for following reasons :

  • A bailment can be of movable property only and movable property does not include money. Thus, bailment cannot be made about money.
  • An essential feature of bailment is that the specific goods’ should be returned to bailor after specific period or purpose. Since, the bank is not bound to return the identical (some) currency notes or coins which were deposited, bank deposit cannot amount to bailment.
  • In case of bailment, bailor can specify the purposes for which the goods bailed may be by bank. Therefore, bank deposit cannot amount to bailment.

Thus, the relationship between bank and customer is that of debtor and creditor and not that of bailee and bailor.

(b) Bank Locker and Bailment : A customer occupies a bank locker, puts his valuables in it and pays rent for it. There are two keys of bank locker-one remains with customer and another remains with bank. Whenever he wants to put his valuables in locker or to withdraw them. He goes to bank and operates the locker, no one else, other than him, can operate it, the same things are returned to him. Thus the valuables put in a bank locker amount to bailment even. Notes or coins put in bank locker amount to bailment.
