  1. In geth deployment of the smart contract is working, while calling functionalities I am facing some issues.

2.both web3 code and solidity codes are working in public ethereum but the same codes are not working in private network(geth).

  1. Is there any problem with my geth or genesis.json.

Web3js error:

    Error: Returned values aren't valid, did it run Out of Gas?
