Party Who Calls For Document Not Bound To Offer It

Production of papers or documents upon the trial, pursuant to a
notice duly served, does not make such papers or documents evidence.
It is not until the party who demanded the production of the papers
examine them and offers them in evidence that they assume the status
of evidentiary matter.

A party who calls for the production of a document and inspects it
is not obliged to offer it as evidence.(Rule 130,Sec.8)
