With liberalization and globalization, the Indian Economy is open to international competition. A number of contracts including international contracts are being entered every day in business transactions.Thus the law of contracts has gained much prominence due to the galloping growth in international trade and commercial activities.It is, therefore, necessary that a lawyer should equip himself thoroughly with the knowledge of principles of contract so that he can efficiently and effectively handle the novel cases that are, of late, cropping up.
The present book on the Indian Contract Act, 1872 and the Specific Relief Act, 1963 has been written primarily to fulfill these objectives, besides making it extremely useful for examination purposes of law students.While the provisions of above enactments have been presented in the form of essays, it is ensured that the language is simple, coherent and the lessons are illustrated with leading case laws. In Volume II, previous year university problems have been answered mainly with a view to understanding the practical application of the statutory provisions of the Indian Contract Act and the Specific Relief Act. Reference answers with page numbers have been provided for the previous year university question papers, which will be very useful for review of answers with reference to the university questions.We positively hope that this updated edition shall not only meet the full examination requirements of all law students but also ensure their creditable success, class and rank.
