The Key to Indian Practice is an acclaimed classic that contains a lucid summary of the provisions of the Code of Civil Procedure and provides an overview of the conduct of civil suits in Indian courts. The book educates legal practitioners and consultants about the practice and procedure in the conduct of suits in and out of court. In these chapters, the course of an ordinary suit is followed from the moment the plaintiff determines to sue till the time he obtains a decree. The critical process of execution of a decree and the possible consequences of an appeal by an affected party have also been dealt with in detail. This explanatory method of treatment enables advocates not only to understand the provisions of the Code, but also to see how these provisions are applied in practice. Every important section of the Code has been noted in its appropriate place, thus making the work useful not only as a guide to Indian practice, but also as a readable summary of the Code best suited to the requirements of legal professionals, those with experience as well as new entrants to the field of law. This current edition has been revised thoroughly and the case law has been updated extensively to include latest judgments.
