Nature, origin and sources of Hindu law

Hindu law has a very old origin. It is the result of the long penance and meditation of archaic peers and sages. It has been agreed by JD Mayne that Hindu law has the oldest pedigree of any known system of jurisprudence in the world. 

MEANING AND NATURE OF COMPANY UNDER COMPANIES ACT

The company legislation in India has run hand to hand with the company legislation in England. The first legislative sanction was passed in the year 1850 for registration of joint-stock companies as same as passed by English companies 1844. Thereafter in 1866, the companies act was passed for colligation and rectifying the law relating to incorporation, regulation and winding up of trading companies.

INDIA’S CONFRONTATION TO CONTEMPORARY WARFARE

The human civilisation standing in the twenty-first century has witnessed numerous criminal misdemeanour in society from the time of its inception. It is often said that a single act of crime leaves an impression of grief and despair on the society for many days to come but the irony lies here wherein a country like India reports hundreds of crimes in a single day yet there hardly any effective reforms on the policies and working mechanism of the law enforcing agencies. It is quite unfortunate to mention out the fact that the penal philosophy of India has never stood as per the expectation of a safe society. 

DOCTRINE OF SUSPENSION OF RENT

The disruption caused by Covid-19 is within everyone’s reach. Businesses in all sectors have been severely affected as a result of the varying versions of lockdown orders issued from time to time by central and state governments. Since all businesses continue to strive to conserve cash and reduce costs, one of the main payments that all businesses are actively trying to avoid or minimize exposure to is rental payments.

FAKE NEWS IN THE TIMES OF COVID-19: A Legal Perspective

SHOULD THE RIGHT OF A CONCEIVED RAPE SURVIVOR OUTWEIGH THE RIGHT OF AN UNBORN CHILD?

Rights have always been a rhapsodic topic of debate. And it would not be an exaggeration to categorise “The Right to Life and Personal Liberty” as the most exhilarating right. This particular right does not have a parochial outlook but a progressive outfit. It becomes a herculean task for an individual to delineate the boundary of the ‘Right to life’. If simply demarcating its ambit is such onerous, one cannot even imagine how cumbersome it would be to compare between the right to life and personal liberty of two different individuals. In this paper, we would try to strain every nerve and sinew to make a fruitful comparison between the rights of two inextricably linked individuals: – a conceived rape survivor and an unborn child. 

INSENSITIVE JOURNALISM: A LEGAL PERSPECTIVE

The basic goal of journalism is to serve the individuals with the news and data on public matters in a reasonable, precise, impartial, modest way and language. Media has the power to ensure that the issues and grievances of the different sections of the society are reached to the government.  The tragic news of the demise of Bollywood actor, Sushant Singh Rajput was trailed by a commotion for the lamentable way the news was communicated by different conventional news channels of the nation. It shows the inhumane desire for constant media coverage in degrading ways only for TRPs. The unexpected loss of a young brilliant actor was not desensitizing enough; Indian media aggravated it with their harsh inclusion of the matter. A father who had quite recently lost his young child had a mic pushed into his face. Pictures of Sushant’s body were shared alongside realistic subtleties of how he took his life without even blurring his face. This shows how Indian media demonstrated its lack of ability to find ways only for TRP.

Self-Reliant India: A Road Ahead By Reframing the Foreign Investment Policy

The present context of the Indian market is such that most of the foreign companies want to invest in India. The “Make in India” scheme has also invited many foreign investors on this land. Moreover, during this global pandemic of Covid-19 many industries are moving out of China and want to come to India for setting up their companies but the investment in India is governed by some laws which cannot be overlooked and have to be kept in compliance while investing in the Indian market. The amendment is done under Section 46 of the Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999[1] which legally empowers the central government to make rules by public notification related to foreign investment. So the act of the government to channelise the foreign investment policy is legally valid and has been done in the wake of giving opportunities to the domestic entrepreneurs of the nation.
