Potana Bhagavatam says
VArijAkshulandu, VaivAhikamulandu, PrAna Vitta MAna bhangamulandu paliki bonkavachchu
Breach of promise is allowed in the cases of love, marriage, threat to life, property, or respect
In this padya Sukracharaya says situations where lies are allowed. Its a different matter that Bali chakravarti did not agree with this and keeps his promise to Vamana and thus attain permanent place in history

Lie spoken to protect fdharma is not lie/a hunter was triying to go after an animal to kill him/animal at a bifurcated road junction could not decide on what road animal had gone and asked a sadhu/sadu even was aware said i did not noticed/he did it for protecting animal so he has not done any sin
