Description

Anand & lyer's Commentary on Law of Specific Relief is widely acclaimed and retained authority on the topic in hand. Last edition of the instant book has been well read and appreciated by our esteemed readers. Now, just to cater the cause of the legal fraternity, it has been felt necessary to update the existing treatise, and, especially in order to consolidate and incorprate the latest developments as have been taken place in the field of law concerned. Our methodology behind the revision work is to cull out the relevant cases, rationise them and place them in easily assimilable form. Though the Act widens the spheres of the Civil Court, its Preamble shows that the Act is not exhaustive of all kinds of specific reliefs. However, the Act is not restricted to specific performance of contracts as the statute governs powers of the Court in granting specific reliefs in a variety of fields. Even so, the instant Act does not cover all specific reliefs as conceivable. The object of the Specific Relief Act is confined to that class of remedies which a Suitor seeks to obtain and a Court of Law seeks to provide him the very relief to which he is entitled.
