Overview:

In this book, the author has taken great pains to collect the various forms of hundis and customs relating thereto prevalent in India and has given, wherever possible, the law relating to hundis. The commentary has not only been based on the Indian case-law but frequent references have been made to English cases, and where the two laws differ, the distinction has been pointed out. Every attempt has been made to make the work exhaustive so far as the Indian case-law is concerned. Care has been taken to select only the important decisions for reference.

An instructive introduction containing the origin, the growth, the object and meaning of negotiable instruments and hundis has been given. A brief summary has also been added, which will be found useful not only by beginners to form a clear idea of the outlines of the subject but also by advanced students for the purposes of revision. Appendices giving the law relating to hundis, stamps on negotiable instruments, the rules relating to notaries public and the Bills of Exchange Act have been added.

An attempt has been made throughout the work to make this highly complicated subject so easy, clear and simple that even the students of elementary law may be able to understand it and yet so accurate and exhaustive as not to lose its value for an up-to-date lawyer. Special attention has also been paid to make the work of practical interest for bankers, businessmen and students of commerce.
