This five-volume exhaustive Digest on the subject Supreme Court on Contract and Specific Relief is a complete source for the entire case-law on the subject, from 1950 to the present, as laid down by the Supreme Court. As a special feature, to make this Digest even more comprehensive, it contains the full Bare Acts of all the important governing statutes like: Contract Act, 1872; Sale of Goods Act, 1930; Specific Relief Act, 1877 and the Specific Relief Act, 1963.
This is the Third Edition of this work, which now spans about 14 years, as the First Edition was released in 2008. The Topic-based Index System adopted in this Digest (in consonance with the Complete Digest Series) is now well-established. The key to correctly understanding the Law of Contract and Specific Relief is by adopting what may be called the “Life Cycle of the Contract Approach”: i.e. indexing the entire law into Stages from the Birth of a Contract to its End, and even beyond
Hence, the entire case law has been indexed under the following major Stages in the Life Cycle of the Contract:
Formation of Contract
Formation defects/Voidability/Voidness of the Contract
Variation, Rectification, Novation and Ratification of the Contract
Construction/Interpretation of Contract
Contractual Obligations and Rights
Performance of Contract
Waiver and Remission
Termination/Repudiation/Discharge of Contract
Remedies/Relief (Contractual and Non-Contractual)
The remaining major topics being Practice and Procedure and Specific Contracts.
Further, case-law has also been digested under all the important governing statutes where found appropriate: Contract Act, 1872; Sale of Goods Act, 1930 and the Specific Relief Acts, 1877/1963.
The rulings have been arranged under both Topic and Statutory headings, interconnected by a well-planned cross-reference system, supported by synopsis wherever necessary to make research of relevant rulings convenient. Another very useful feature of this Digest is that since digest notes on the same or similar points are naturally placed close to each other, by locating the digest notes on any known case from the Table of Cases Digested, other relevant rulings on that point can easily be located nearby. The regular features like cross-citations, annotations, Coram details, editorial notes and comments also continue.
This systematic, analytical and comprehensive 5 volume Digest will be of immense use to the courts, legal professionals and all those who need to access the Law of Contract and Specific Relief.
