About The Book

A cosmetic change in the breakup of syllabus for semesters III and IV with trimming of study at the cost of providing essential and quality knowledge to the reader is rather disturbing and anguishing. The first reading of division of Business Law in two Semesters sets out the impression of importance extended to the study of Business Law, but analysis of Syllabus leaves one hollow and depressed. Why do I say so -
Semester IV - Company Law - without study of share capital of company, prospectus and management of company, the two pillars of Company Law.
Law of Co-op. Societies - without study of disputes and procedure of settlement of disputes.
Law of Partnership - without study of incoming and outgoing partners - reconstitution of a firm and limited liability partnership.

Just imagine study of law without its essentials of enforcement agencies and resolution of disputes is like expecting the fish to remain alive out of water. As I refused to remain depressed, my readers will excuse me in making the reading of this edition more than required for yours exams, as I have included study of prospectus and management in Company Law, topic on disputes and procedure f settlement of disputes in Law of Co-operative Societies and topic on incoming and outgoing partners - reconstitution of a firm with a brief note on limited partnership in Law of Partisanship to make the reading, if not complete, at least with basis and essentials for required knowledge when you step into business/commercial world.

I have therefore revised the extended 23rd Edition of Business Law simultaneously extending the study of Business Law for Semester IV to absolute essentials. I hope that after study of both Semester III and Semester IV, you will step out enriched with study of subjects as well equipped in study of Business Law.

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.

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.
