Administrative law, which is uncertified in our country, has grown enormously in recent decades and continues to do so. New concepts have been evolved by the higher judiciary, particularly the Supreme Court. The scope of this judge-made law, as it is commonly known, is getting widened with every decision involving administrative intervention in the daily lives of the people. As the administrative duties of the government are increasing every day so is this law which is as old as the administration itself. With all this, the bulk of the books on Administrative Law is ever-growing and this book is no exception. The corpus of this book has especially grown much because it digests not only Indian cases but also foreign ones. It is most exhaustive in the sense that it leaves almost no case on Administrative Law decided by the Apex Court of the land undigested. One will hardly find a case pertaining to Administrative Law reported in Supreme Court cases (SCC) under this heading and also under the heading of the Constitutional Law of India, not given a proper and relevant place in this voluminous book. The novelty of giving facts of the important cases on a particular subject simply adds to its academic value as at times one finds it hard to appreciate a case in the absence of its factual matrix. The book is a very useful reference not only to practitioners but also to students of administrative law. Practically, it will be very convenient to locate a ruling/case law on a particular subject as the whole matter besides its detailed chapterisation has been placed under numerous headings and sub-headings. One will hardly find another book dealing with the topics like principles of natural justice, delegated legislation, administrative adjudication, administrative bodies and powers, discretionary powers, public interest litigation, judicial control of administrative action so exhaustively. Besides, topics like interpretation of delegated legislation, administrative duties, conduct of government business, proportionality, government contracts, restitution, misfeasance in public office, public interest immunity, ombudsman/ lokpal, corruption, open government and central vigilance commission only add to the book's academic value and its uniqueness. This seventh edition, with latest case law both of the Supreme Court and the High Courts will prove to be useful to everyone concerned with this branch of law, particularly to those who love to be exhaustively updated.
