Answer:

A has committed forgery under Sec. 463. Forgery is making any false document with intent to deceive any person.

 

  1. A has made a false document by signing the bill of exchange in such a way as to appear as if it is signed by another person of his own name.

 

  1. Such signing of the document is with the intention to commit fraud.

 

The Section expressly says that a man’s signature of his own name may amount to forgery.

 

Thus though A has signed his own name in the Bill of Exchange, it is forgery because he has signed it in such a way as to make it appear as the signature of another person of the same name. A has committed the offence of forgery.
