Hi Karthik,

The difference is in HTML (code) parsing or not. When you use t-esc it will literally print out the value from the field you want to print. When you use t-raw in combination with an HTML field for example it will keep the content in HTML. If you would do a t-esc on an HTML field it will print your HTML code without interpreting it to actual code.

For example you have a field with:

<p>My code</p>

If you would use t-raw it will be handled as HTML and so your <p> element won't be shown because it is converted. When you would do the same with t-esc it would literally print <p>My code</p> on your report.
