This Maxim means that evidence that is false in one particular is false in all. This maxim is not a mandatory rule and is dangerous to apply. WigMore criticised it at as worthless. There is always a fringe of embroidery of story, however, true in the main. The whole of the evidence should not be rejected merely for want of veracity on some minor point,  for it would only lead to miscarriage of justice. The Indian Courts, therefore treated it as merely a rule of caution affecting the weight of evidence only.
