The importance of the Contract Act, the Sale of Goods Act and the Partnership Act can hardly be ignored, as in the complexities of modern life, almost every transaction of one man with another is either a general contract or a special contract.The principles, basis and types of special contracts have to be thoroughly learnt and for such a clear theoretical and practical study, understanding, knowledge and perception of the subject, it is hoped that this book will be extremely useful.
The book has also been prepared from the examination point of view to fulfill the requirements of students preparing for any examination on the Law of Contracts or Mercantile Law. The book not only covers the entire syllabus of Contract – II (Special Contracts) but also answers for the previous year university questions. At the end of the book, for all the previous year university questions, reference answers have been given. To cater to the needs of Karnataka State Law University students, the Hire Purchase Act, 1972 has been explained as Part-VI in this book.The solved University Problems are separately answered in Contract-II – Volume – II (at separate cost).It is hoped that this revised edition will continue to receive the spontaneous response and encouragement as ever before.
