Description
Maritime activity consists of a triangle having three vertices namely Character Part, Bill of Lading and Carriage of Goods by Sea. They are interlinked and interdependent in the sense that these three aspects of maritime activity provide the necessary lubricant and fuel to each other to avoid frictional complexities. Thus, to have a clean and clear comprehension of maritime activity, we have to have a comprehensive study of these aspects. The primary object of the work is apparently to bring in a concise manner within the easy and convenient reach of busy people the relevant and up to date law in order to cope with knotty problems which may confront them, particularly regarding the construction of the Indian Bills of Lading Act and the Indian Carriage of Goods by Sea Act in the present age of continually expanding international trade. The introductory chapter of the book and the well-arranged appendices are very informative and useful. All latest important case law has been included in this edition of book with full discussion which could make easy the complex questions of law. The book will be a great asset to business, commercial, judicial and administrative worlds, and also to the legal professionals in India
