In the absence of a partnership deed, the provisions of the Indian Partnership Act, 1932, apply. According to the Act, if there is no agreement regarding the interest on drawings withdrawn by the partners, then no interest on drawings is charged from any of the partners. Therefore, in this situation, Jatinder’s view of charging interest on drawings is not acceptable, and Sunil must have convinced him stating the provisions contained in the Partnership Act, 1932.
