This authoritative work covers the complete law on the subject of GOVERNMENT PROPERTY and LAND - ALLOTMENT, LEASE, GRANTS, LARGESSE as laid down by the Supreme Court from its inception in 1950 to date. The present two volume Digest has been conceived and planned based on the time-tested SCC index system to enable the discovery of all the rulings, easily and quickly.
All cases relating to Government Property & Land - Allotment, Lease, Grants, Largesse are mostly governed by the three branches of law viz.:-
- Public Law/Administrative Law Principles.
- The Contract Law.
- The Property Law.
The case law has been broadly arranged under the headings of:
a) Private Law/Property Law Principles –(Allotment, Sale, Lease, Specific Government Grants and Other Transfers of Government/ Public Property and Related Issues) and
b) Public Law/Administrative Law Principles' – (Modes of Allocation of State Largesse, Government Grants, Government/Public Property and Licences and Related issues).
The Public Premises (Eviction of Unauthorised Occupants) Act, 1971 (with similar State enactments) and all allied rulings have been covered in detail under the heading Illegal /Unauthorised Occupation/Encroachment of Government Land and Eviction/Dispossession therefrom and Demolition' in Volume 2.
Further the digest contains the usual features like detailed cross-references given at appropriate places, topic headings and synopses to enable quick reference, table of cases Digested, Date of decision, Coram details, etc.
Since a great deal of case law on Government Contracts and Tenders has been covered in Supreme Court on Government Contracts and Tenders the digest serves as a valuable companion work for the entire law on the subject.
