The Key to Indian Practice 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 the student of law on 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 and, thereafter, follows appeal by the defendant and further appeals. This explanatory method of treatment enables the student 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 beginners in the study of law as well as new entrants in the field of law. This current edition has been revised thoroughly and the case law has been updated extensively.
