  • Description

 Despite the Constitution`s call for a uniform civil code the system of community-specific personal laws remains the order of the day in India. The codified personal law applicable under this conventional regime to four different religious  communities, together having over 80% share in the country`s population, is inaccurately called `Hindu Law`. The book offers a critical study of this major component of India`s family law from certain new angles. Statutory provisions and their judicial interpretations have been viewed and presented in it in a historical, constitutional and human rights perspective. Since this law, like all other personal laws, has to be applied along with and subject to a number of general statutes, their provisions have also been brought into discussion in all chapters. The book is an advancement over the author`s earlier work studies in Hindu Law last published in 1998 and registers all legislative developments and judicial verdicts of the new millennium
