About The Book

Twentyfourth edition of this book is now divided in two parts. Business Law – I and Business Law – II in view of revised break up of syllabus for Semester III and Semester IV respectively. In July 2013, I placed in the hands of my students Business Law – I for Semester III. Now is the turn of Business Law – II for Semester IV.

Modules I to IV for Semester IV have radically changed the original syllabus, though not to the required standards. Gaps are yawning and additions are too taxing and unimaginable as the framers of the syllabus continue to be indifferent to the cause.

Module I of Indian Companies Act, 1956 shockingly omits study of management of companies and shares and debentures. Module II for just 15 marks multiplies the study to most immoderate study. Students are required to study: (i) Reconstructions and mergers, (ii) Establishment, powers and procedures of Tribunal and Appellate Tribunal, both under the heading Corporate Laws, (iii) The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), (iv) Patents, (v) Copyrights, (vi) Trademarks, (vii) Designs, (viii) Geographical indications, (ix) Plant varieties, last six under Intellectual Property Rights. Corporate Laws are part of Companies Act, 1956. Nevertheless, while Module I is the study of Indian Companies Act, 1956, Module II however, segregates reconstructions and mergers and establishment of Tribunals under Corporate Laws. Only framers know the object of this segregation as in my view this is totally irrational.

Companies Act, 1956 is now in phases being replaced by Companies Act, 2013 and is expected to fully come into force by March, 2014. By the time, you are throughwith your exams, this Act shall become obsolete.

He was appointed as Senior Central Government Counsel in 1993. Several of the landmark cases in which Mr. Bulchandani has appeared are reported in various law journals.    Author of several books on law in his hay days, Mr. Bulchandani due to his professional commitments could not devote much to his writings until in 1978 he penned his first edition on "Business Law". The book received tremendous response particularly from the students of B. Com. The book has since been published in its 20th Edition in 2006. Justice Lentin, in his foreword to the 15th Edition of the book, has commended the book in following words: "Writing a foreword is a chore with rarely an exception. The exception is Business Law by Mr. K.R. Bulchandani,      

When writing a foreword becomes a pleasure." In view of the immense popularity of the "Business Law" book, Mr. Bulchandani penned Business Law for Management dealing with most of the commercial law including Law of Restrictive Trade practices, Law of Foreign Exchange and Laws of securities and stock Exchange, Law on Information on Technology, and Competition Act. The first Edition of the book was blessed with a Foreword by Mr. Justice Y.K. Sabharwal, the then chief Justice of Bombay High Court.     

Further extensions of Business Law for Management on all India level is now being presented by Mr. Bulchandani in the form of this treaties for treaties for professionals, Executives, Management Consultants, Students and others. Every reader will find this book indispensable as every day activities of each individual are regulated by one or the other law and this book deals with most of such laws.
