This book puts forward the view that a sound and satisfying foundation for a general and fully National Indian Law of Affidavits lies in our unalterable commiment to Vedas, Upanishads. Puranas and Smritis which speak in solemn organic harmony. The succeeding chapters contain detailed discussion concerning affidavits in general and in the context of various enactments and legal proceeding. Affidavits find a place not only in the Code of Civil Procedure, but in other statutes as well. Still the basic and fundamental principles are based on the overview of the CPC and gain relevance and signifignace from these. The book is useful to the judges, lawyers, administrators and would also help laymen understand the law of affidavit better.
