“Dr. I.P. Massey’s book contains a lucid exposition of administrative law in all its aspects and dimensions and offers a highly perceptive and critical analysis. I have no doubt that this book will be of immense use not only to law students but also to lawyers and administrators and men in public life.”- Extract from the Foreword by Justice P. N. Bhagwati, Judge Supreme Court of India.
The Ninth edition of this scholarly work has been thoroughly revised and updated with the latest case laws and contemporary developments in various spheres of administrative law from India and abroad. The book also contains Prof. Upendra Baxi’s insightful and thought provoking Introduction which remains the most attractive part of the treatise.
Areas like tribunalisation of justice, judicial review of administrative action, public and private dilemma in the age of corporatisation have received special attention in this revision.
The book is divided into fifteen chapters in which the author has discussed a variety of topics like Natural Justice, Delegated Legislation, Governmental Liability, Enforcement of Public Duties, Ombudsman, Right to Know, Jurisdictional Reach, Remedial Law, etc. Besides, the current edition also includes a chapter on “Tribunalisation of Justice” which is relatively new to the field of administrative law.
