Avatar Singh’s Company Law is a very popular book amongst students. Even the teachers read it because it is always up-to-date with recent amendments and cases included. It is also reliable and readable as the language is simple, style lucid and clear and the price affordable for students. I also appreciate EBC\'s tireless endeavour to constantly improve publications and update them.
