This popular work has been reprinted and updated with supplement containing Specific Relief (Amendment) Act, 2018 (Act 18 of 2018) and Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019 (Act 34 of 2019).
Contract and Specific Relief by Dr. Avtar Singh is an authoritative and most sought after book on the subject. The book deals with the intricacies of contract law in a straightforward and lucid style. The book covers many new developing areas in contract law which are of practical and academic importance.
The current twelfth edition of the book has been thoroughly revised and updated by the author. The book covers recent decisions on issues arising out of modern day trade and commerce, which have thereby contributed to the development of the law on the subject. For example, whether an agreement entered into by e-mail process, though not signed by parties has binding effect; whether BCCI can have an interest in events organised by the Board; whether pledgee’s right for his dues prevails over all other rights and claims; and whether privity of contract is necessary for seeking specific performance.
