About this Blog

Welcome to the Indian Corporate Law Blog!

At the outset, it is appropriate to set out the goals and objectives of this blog, and what it seeks to encompass. Very simply, it is nothing more than a humble effort to track key developments in the sphere of corporate law in India and to foster discussion and deliberation on issues as they emerge. It will also serve as an informal knowledge base for news and ideas on topics in Indian corporate law. Effort will be made to address issues both from academic and practice standpoints.

As to the scope of the blog, the title “Indian Corporate Law” somewhat underplays its real breadth. It is intended to cover all areas of the law that affect the operation of companies in India; in a sense, it subsumes all laws that play a role in business and commerce. It would therefore include laws such as company law, contract law, securities laws, foreign investment laws, property law and the like. While the blog is intended primarily to focus on Indian laws, it would not be out of place to follow similar developments internationally as those may have implications for India as well, thanks to the increasing interconnectivity in markets across jurisdictions owing to globalization.

Hope you enjoy and benefit from reading this blog.
