This treatise ipso-facto is a pointer to the factum of the complexities involved in the subject of
‘Law of Notices’. By what mode and means the notice is to be served; to whom the notice is to be
addressed and where it is required to be served; what should be the title of the notice and so also
what should be its contents; when shall we deem the notice to have been ‘sent’ and when do we say
the same to have been ‘served’ are some of the questions which have been sought to be answered
in the present work, for the reason that on such issues, more often than not, the legal proceedings
are found to have failed.
• Contains threadbare analysis of technical provisions of the law of notices and their related
• The thesis of commentary lies in it drawing a different line altogether contrary to the
well-established cannons of law with the support of pragmatic landmark decisions of the
constitutional courts in India including the Supreme Court.
• The authors have emphasized a new developing theory on the subject that tilts towards the
concept of notice being only a ‘procedural requirement’ as against a ‘substantive requirement’
to render effective justice
• Some chapters have been exclusively devoted to the law relating to ‘electronic notices’,
touching almost all practical aspects along with appropriate arguments
• Not only has the subject been handled with dexterity in this work but also almost all relevant
case law has been referred to.
