  • Description

The book attempts to serve as a guide to the lengthiest constitution in the world in a 2-volumes, by including critical analysis of all important judgments. This title has completed nearly 6 decades. In the new edition, the Revising Editor, Justice A K Patnaik, has re-structured the narrative in a more sensible manner by incorporating his case notes of important constitutional judgments covered in all volumes of the SCC up to 2017.

Key Highlights:-

  • Includes latest cases like Supreme Court Judgment of January 2 2017, in Krishnakumar v State of Bihar, where a seven judge bench has stated that re-promulgation of ordinances is a fraud on the Constitution and a subversion of democratic legislative processes.
  • Quoted as reference in multiple SC judgments. E.g. Secretary, State of Karnataka and Ors vs Umadevi and Ors - MANU/SC/1918/2006 (2006), K.T. Plantation Pvt. Ltd. and Anr vs State of Karnataka (2011) - MANU/SC/0914/2011;
  • Quoted as reference in over 100 HC judgments dating back to 1958. Some of them include: Bombay HC, 1983 : Basantibai Fakirchand Khetan and Ors vs State of Maharashtra and Anr - MANU/MH/0310/1984; Bombay HC, 2004 : Nirmala L. Mehta vs A. Balasubramaniam, Commissioner of Income Tax and Ors - MANU/MH/0328/2004; Himachal Pradesh HC (2016) :Chaman Lal Bali and Ors vs State of Himachal Pradesh and Ors - MANU/HP/0720/2016
