OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF BREACH OF CONTRACT
Party rightfully rescinding contract entitled to compensation
75. A person who rightly rescinds a contract is entitled to compensation for any damage which he has sustained through the non-fulfilment of the contract.
A, a singer, contract with B, the manager of a theatre, to sing at his theatre for two nights in every week during the next two months, and B engages to pay her 100 Taka for each night's performance. On the sixth night, A wilfully absents herself from the theatre, and B, in consequence, rescinds the contract. B is entitled to claim compensation for the damage which he has sustained through the non-fulfilment of the contract.
