Law of Sale of Goods by Avtar Singh is a well-acclaimed work dealing with the law relating to the sale of goods and hire-purchases in India.
It defines the position and liability of a manufacturer, dealer and seller in relation to a purchaser viz. the Sale of Goods Act, 1939 and the Hire-Purchase Act, 1972 (unenforced). The relevancy of the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 in sale of goods and hire-purchases is also explained throughout the book as well as given separately as Appendix I to the book. Brief notes are given on miscellaneous topics like specific performance, anticipatory breach, recovery of interest and incidence of taxation. Foreign authorities are profusely quoted in order to explain the concepts involved.
The edition looks into the developments in the allied statutory fields especially the amendments in the Consumer Protection Act, 1986. The learned author has covered the recent decisions rendered by the Apex Court and High Courts while attempting to present a consistent account of the apparently conflicting decisions. Some of the recent developments analysed include the concept of passing of property, importance of time of delivery and changes made by the Universal Commercial Code in the remedial aspects of the subject etc. Also, Brief Contents, Detailed Contents, Table of Cases and Subject Index are provided to enable easy reference.
The book is very informative and authoritative and hope will prove useful to a wide readership covering students, teachers, consultants, lawyers and general public at large dealing in hire-purchase agreements.
