Reviews

 

  • Student Advocate :

 

      The worth of the book is in its ability to enable a newcomer to the field to learn the basics of MRTP with ease. The book contains an outline of the law of MRTP, including its original objects and the manner in which it has changed over the years. An important feature of the book is that it discusses important topics relevant to the chapter concerned and at the same time retains the basic format of analysing each provision separately.

 

  • Academy Law Review :

 

      The book under review is important in the light of recent amendments to the Act. The book is divided into six chapters. The author has covered important aspects of the statute. The book will be of assistance to legal practitioners and law students.

 

  • Cochin University Law Review :

 

      The present edition is fully updated and contains three appendices with the salient features of the amendment to the M.R.T.P. Act in 1991. While retaining the general frame work, the contents have been enriched by incorporating the important statutory changes and the developments on the judicial front. The presentation of the book is excellent. The arrangement of case index, footnotes and printing is very clear.

 

  • Kerala Law Times :

 

      A succinct and illustrative exposition of the provisions of the Law of Monopolies Restrictive and Unfair Trade Practices is given in this book. The learned author in a wide compass has taken within its fold discussion on all the situations, possibilities and aspects that can arise in the practical working of these provisions and contains vivid, analytical discussions on the various propositions arising therein. Decided cases made relevant by the provisions of the Act have been brought in aid.

 

  • Management Accountant :

 

      This effort would immensely help the executives in the private sector units, the press and the public undertakings. This is a useful compendium to the students of ICSI, the other professionals in the merchant banking and consultancy divisions, and specially those persons and consultants who are concerned with reconstruction schemes under the Companies Act, 1956, and the MRTP Act. The treatise presents the legal provisions in a lucid and interesting manner. Each section of the Act has been analysed and amplified with comments and comprehensive notes.

 

  • Review Projector :

 

    The book under review is not a commentary but a full fledged thrust into the 'Myriads ' of the jungle of MRTP. A bird 's eye view suggests that an attempt has been positively made to comprehend the otherwise cumbersome and confusing Act. The book stands out as a good text book for CS/ICWA/Post Graduate/Graduate examinations and also for libraries.
