ABOUT THE BOOK:
The eighth edition of this very popular work has been thoroughly revised and updated with the latest relevant rulings in the light of the recent changed scenario regarding law relating to the sale of goods and hire-purchases in India.
The following are the highlights of this new edition:
1. Includes a chapter on "Concept of Supply of Goods" introduced by GST.
2. Discusses relevancy of the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 in sale of goods and hire-purchases.
3. Brief notes on topics like specific performance, anticipatory breach, recovery of interest and incidence of taxation.
The new edition deliberates upon issues such as: whether the goods remain at the risk of the seller where he failed to comply with the requirements of a CIF contract; whether a seller in a hire-purchase transaction can forcibly take away the material where there is default in payment of instalment by the hire-purchaser; whether service providers, like builders, have to pay sales tax on the material used in the service, etc.
