This exhaustive Digest brings together varied subjects of commercial and business laws under one roof namely Industry, Trade, Development and Business Laws. The important sub-topics covered include Foreign Trade and Investment, Industrial Development/ Industrialisation and Essential Commodities and Services. The Digest is a complete source for the entire case-law on this umbrella subject, from 1950 to 2019* as laid down by the Supreme Court.
Reflecting the fast paced modernisation and liberalisation of the rapidly growing Indian economy, this Digest will be of particular utility to the practitioners of commercial and business laws. Since there are still some goods which are governed by the Essential Commodities regime, hence this new umbrella subject is a mix of the new and old laws, as they will evolve and change with the opening up of the economy.
The work provides the full statutory text of the following Statutes: Foreign Trade (Development and Regulation) Act, 1992; Industries (Development and Regulation) Act, 1951 and Essential Commodities Act, 1955. The authors have discussed in detail important topics like Commercial, Trade and Mercantile Contracts, Foreign Trade and Investment, Industrial Development/Industrialisation and Essential Commodities and Services, etc.
The Digest has been conceived and planned on the time-tested SCC index system to enable the discovery of all the rulings, easily and quickly. 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-citation, annotations, editorial notes and comments also continues.
Thus, this comprehensive compilation of rulings on this panoptic subject by the Supreme Court, arranged in this manner will greatly benefit the commercial and business lawyers when read along with the closely allied works Supreme Court on SARFAESI/RDDBAct, Debt & Interest Recovery, Cheque Dishonour, FEMA/FERA and Allied Laws, and the soon to be released Supreme Court on Insolvency and Bankruptcy Laws, which will include coverage of all Supreme Court rulings on the Insolvency Code, 2016.
*Case-law in this volume is covered up to (2019) 2 SCC, and up to (2018) 16 SCC
