What is Representation of principal by sub-agent properly appointed? What is Agent's responsibility for sub-agent appointed without authority? Section 192 and 193 of Indian Contract Act 1872
192. Where a sub-agent is properly appointed, the principal is, so far as regards third person, represented by the sub-agent, and is bound by and responsible for his acts, as if he were an agent originally appointed by the principal.
Agent's responsibility for sub-agent.-The agent is responsible to the principal for the acts of the sub-agent.
Sub-agent's responsibility.-The sub-agent is responsible for his acts to the agent, but not to the principal, except in case of fraud or wilful wrong.
193. Where an agent, without having authority to do so, has appointed a person to act as a sub-agent, the agent stands towards such person in the relation of a principal to an agent, and is responsible for his acts both to the principal and to third persons; the principal is not represented by or responsible for the acts of the person so employed, nor is that person responsible to the principal.
