    The legal basis for partnership firms in India is outlined in the Indian Partnership Act of 1932. This law covers numerous facets of partnership formation and establishes the legal obligations, rights, and relationships between partners and third parties. The standing of partners and partnership firms in legal and contractual issues relating to their commercial operations is established.

    According to Section 4 of the Indian Partnership Act, a partnership is created when two or more people decide to split the earnings from a business venture that one or more of them undertakes on the group's behalf. Consequently, a partnership consists of three essential components.

    The following prerequisites must be fulfilled in order to create a partnership:

    1. Partnership must be established as the consequence of an agreement between two or more people.
    2. Profit Sharing: The contract should outline how the business's profits will be split.
    3. Representation: All or any of the partners must manage and run the company on behalf of the partnership as a whole.

    A valid partnership requires the coexistence of each of these requirements.

However, the partnership deed should be revised and a supplemental agreement should be signed whenever a new partner joins the business. Under the Indian Partnership Act of 1932, the partnership firm must be registered with the Registrar of Firms even though individual partner registration is not necessary.
