The higher judiciary often need to consult compilation of case laws on same or similar legal issues. Need for such a compilation was long felt by the judges, lawyers and military outhorities. This is the first and only book covering rulings given by Supreme Court and various High Courts on military law and service conditions of the armed forces as well as of civilians paid from the Defence Estimates and exservicemen.
All the important judgments, reported or unreported, have been classified under main headings and subheadings and are listed subjectwise in a order chronological order. For easy reference to readers, it provides different citations of judgements which have appeared in leading journals along with table of cases.
The first four editions of the book were very well received by the readers and proved a complete sell out. The thoroughly revised and updated fifth edition contains relevant case laws pertaining to exservicemen, service pensioners, and paramilitary forces. Latest Rulings on defence forces have been added to facilitate a better understanding of juristic interpretation.
This volume will be invaluable as a text book for military training institutions, members of the bar as well as Staff Officers serving in military units and formations. It will also help exservicemen and nextofkin to update themselves about admissible benefits and the latest case laws. It is a handy reference work for international readers.
