Description

The present work aims at explaining principles underling certain branches of Mercantile Law in a simple language. With industrialization and the change in socio-economic conditions in the country there has been enormous increase in the volume of trade Big business have generally tried to taken an undue advantage of the unorganized consumer and his weaker bargaining power. Consumers interest has been tried to be protected in England through legislation like the Misrepresentation Act, 1967. The Supply of Goods of (implied Terms) Act,1973, Unfair Contract Terms Act, 1977, Consumer Safety Act,1978 and sale of goods Act,1979. In India there has been very little legislative activism in the branches of law discussed in this books, except in the field of consumers protections. more than century old Indian Contract  Act, remains as it was in 1872 inspite of the recommendations of the  Law Commission in its 13th report (on Indian Contract Act) in 1958 and 103rd Report (on unfair Terms in Contracts) in 1984. Similarly, the Law Commission's 8th Report on the sale of Goods Act submitted in 1958 still remains  unimplemented. In its 11th Report the Law Commission had described the existing scheme of the arrangements of the Negotiable Instruments Act as confusing and illogical and had recommended the revision and re-arrangement of its various provisions, but nothing has been done in that regard so far. However, there  has been significant amendment in the Negotiable Instrument Act, in 1988, whereby dishonor of certain cheques has been made an offense.
