Legitimacy of Law

Introduction Law is a set of rules and regulation framed by the government so that the people of country as well as government can follow them. When it comes to law most of people are scared from the law they think that the law will not give their rights and freedoms but they are wrong. Laws are framed for the country only so they can know about them and can claim their rights. Well our system is not performing according to their competency. The country has passable laws but glitches arise when they are not implemented in letter and spirit and many people seek legal recourse when such problems arise. There are laws for almost everything. For example they have labor law, narcotics act, IPC etc. But still India is lacking behind in the name of justice and there is exploitation of the people who are living in the country. India has a common law legal system innate from the colonial era. India follows the laws passed by the britishers, they passed Indian Contract Act, Indian Penal Code... Read More

The Indian currency has been demonetised twice before in 1946 and 1978, however the recent announcement came as a shock to the Indian population.

Reason behind the drastic move The main reason that governs the strong move of Demonetisation taken by the Government is the pervasiveness of black money and tax evasion in the Indian Econ...

Rule of law also means the supremacy of law. Law governs the country that if only written provision is given then only it must be followed, without given in legal provisions no one is bound to follow. Every citizen who have citizenship of their respective countries and law makers are subject to law. They all are governed under one law and has to follow all principle which are codified acc. to their constitution.

Intellectual Property Patents and Pharmaceutical Industry In India

Samriddha Gooptu

INTRODUCTION : The pharmaceutical sector in India is a well established, prosperous and technologically advanced industry, which has evolved and developed at a steady and constant rate over the preceding three decades. Presently, a large portion of the pharma-industry is dominated by multiple privately owned Indian companies due to industry-friendly government policies and limited competition from overseas pharmaceutical companies.[1] However, due to liberalisation in the Indian economy, many overseas pharma-giants have stepped into the market. Factors relating to protection of intellectual property seem to be taking an upward slope with growing scenarios and needs to ensure safeguarding of high-scale investments in research and development (R&D). Therefore, measures are being taken to restrict adversities relating to enforceability and execution of already prevalent intellectual property laws. The Indian government therefore too has taken considerable steps in establishing a... Read More

Corporate Social Responsibility In India

Samriddha Gooptu

Introduction: Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as a concept over recent years has been the primary epicentre for numerous deliberations and research. It has evolved and developed both at the academic as well as the business world. A wide and detailed definition of the term CSR was given by the European Union (EU).

It is the continuing commitment by business to behave fairly and responsibly, and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the work force and their families as well as the local community and society at large…..”.

Issues and problems with Online Legal Services in India

I was reading the story of one of the first movers in the Online Legal Services industry and was not so surprised to see that one of their Clients has published a comment on their service wherein the Client, who hired a Lawyer from Bangalore through their platform, had to pay advance amount of Rs. 22,000/- without getting the “proper” legal service. Here, I am neither trying to qualify the services of the lawyer nor the online services being provided by this Company. What I am trying to bring to fore is that there are many known and unknown issues with the Legal sector and one cannot claim to know and understand everything about it. If one claims to know, then may be at his/her own peril. The caveat emptor will not work here. Legal sector is uncharted territory and one can see lots of beautiful mermaids (read opportunities) in it but the moment one starts wading or swimming towards them then one realizes that the water is full of piranhas. You get bitten many a times and even fal... Read More
