The current ninth edition of the book has been thoroughly revised and updated by the author.

This is a compact, intelligent, plainly written, and well-organized account of the law relating to Civil Procedure in India. Overall this book is an enormous wealth of information in a compact, easily understandable form. One of the interesting things about the book which sets it apart is the case laws and the case references and the lucid language to understand the complexities of Civil Procedure. This book, prescribed in almost all universities in India, though written for students and junior members of the Bar, is a great reference tool for lawyers and judges.


The clarity of thought and lucidity in style differentiate a masterly author from a compiler of monotonous facts. Among the multitude of Indian law books whose hallmark is lack of originality and clarity the present work stands apart for its lucidity, clarity and novelty.
