Supreme Court and the Indian Economy

A Story of Economic Impact of Six Landmark Cases of the Supreme Court

About the Book

<p>This book innovatively analyses the impact of key decisions made by the Indian Supreme Court on economic matters. It assesses the direct effects of these rulings on relevant sectors and suggests that the Courts could have achieved comparable outcomes with less cost to both society and the economy. The author proposes that the Courts could have used expert advice to attain more balanced resolutions.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Highlighting a positive stance, the book acknowledges the Supreme Court's forward-looking interpretation of the law. It initiates crucial research, prompting a reevaluation of the judiciary's role and legitimacy within the society. This book serves as a valuable resource for lawyers and academics who have an interest in the field of adjudication on economic matters.</p>
