"For more than five and a half decades now, this masterly and meticulously prepared work has remained unsurpassed.
The expanse of the publication has been increased to make it more useful to the industry, the legal practitioners, the courts and the enforcement agencies by including some more related legislations with their rules. In particular the Private Security Agencies (Regulation) Act, 2005 and its Rules have been added.
Since the publication of the last edition there have been several Central and State Amendments to the Acts, Rules and Regulations. Some of the important statutes that have been affected are the apprentices rules, emigration rules, E.P.F. Scheme, E.S.I. Rules, Environment Rules, Ind Empl (S.O.) Rules, etc. Several new and amending notifications have also been received. Side by side there have been very many rulings of the Hon'ble Supreme Court and the various High Courts giving new and fresh interpretations to the many statutory provisions contained in this work. This makes the publication more comprehensive and will be found even more useful by all concerned.
In keeping with the high confidence reposed by the readers of this publication, special care has been taken to maintain the authoritativeness of this work through proper editing and careful insertion of all the amendments and the new provisions.
For ease of reference the subject index has been exhaustively revised so as to enable the reader reach the desired statutory provisions with ease and also permit a comparative study between the same concept, topic or definition in several statutes.
The publication has gained immense popularity because of its increasing and enhanced utility to all those concerned with labour and industrial laws. Useful notes under the sections provide essential and relevant case-law and highlight the important trends in the development of the law. Important notifications dealing with enforcement and applicability of the acts and exercise of delegated power have also been given to provide a true picture of the law. Similarly, state amendments to Central Acts affecting the provisions in such states have also been incorporated.
A must for the judiciary, labour lawyers and labour advisors, personnel managers, labour unions, labour courts, labour commissioners, labour inspectors, students of ICWA, CA, CS and managers of companies and their legal departments." (jacket)
