V.G. Ramachandran’s Law of Writs (in two volumes) revised by V. Sudhish Pai, is an exhaustive commentary acknowledged as the undisputed authority on the subject. Every successive edition of this classic work has received greater appreciation and popularity. It covers all the important developments and case law in this field since the last edition.

Volume I is divided into two parts - Part I (Judicial Review, origin of writs in England and India) and Part II (General Principles of Writ Jurisdiction). Volume II is divided into three parts - Parts III (Specific Writs); Part IV (Supervisory Jurisdiction of High Courts, SLPs, and Constitutional Amendments); and Part V (Practice and Procedure). A new chapter on judicial review has been added. Appendices contain updated bare text of the relevant portions of the Constitution of India; CPC; Supreme Court Rules, 2013; High Court Rules; PIL Rules; and Model Forms of Writ Petitions.

This work will be useful to lawyers, judges, academicians, and scholars in India and abroad.

Extract from the Foreword

V.G. Ramachandran’s “Law of Writs” has over the years attained the status of a legal classic. It was first published 58 years ago and has seen six previous editions. The contribution of Sudhish Pai, who in the lineage of great commentators like Seervai and Basu, is a public law critic, to the development of the culture of public debate is invaluable for the vigorous regeneration of the spirit of healthy and informed discourse on vital public law issues.

— M.N. Venkatachaliah, Former Chief Justice of India


“I greatly admire all the work you have done in bringing it up-to-date .... I am impressed by the comprehensive treatment ... You have done magnificent work in bringing all this knowledge up-to-date and I am confident that it will be of the greatest use to all the Judges and lawyers of the great country of India ...”  — Lord Denning

Everything that has been said by the Indian courts, as well as a great deal of information about the treatment of the writs in both England and the United States, is included.  —Law Books in Review, USA

The present edition has been undergoing change to keep itself abreast with the law. The author has tried to present in a clear, concise, and systematic way this vast, interesting, and complicated subject. Extensive rewriting of the book has been made to incorporate the changes in this edition.  — Academy Law Review

This single comprehensive text on writ jurisdiction ... has since the first edition in 1963 captivated the attention of the legal fraternity. This is a work in its own right and is a magnum opus on the subject. With these impeccable credentials, the book is not only a valuable reference material for Judges, lawyers, and civil servants but also a useful basic book for higher studies and research on the area. — Cochin University Law Review
