Will breach of contract attract Criminal Liability?
A breach of contract leads to civil liability but will it amount to Criminal Liability too(by taking an example of a loss in business/ goodwill of a business , occurred due to non supply of goods in time to high end customers due to a folly of a supplier)

For loss of business/goodwill, compensation can be claimed under civil suit only. If there was a criminal intention (like cheating) in the contract or there was some criminal activity (like wilful destruction of goods), criminal complaint can be lodged.
