    Ramaiya’s Guide to the Companies Act represents the most thorough and comprehensive reference work on corporate law. The book has been relied on and cited in various judgments of the Supreme Court as well as High Courts. This edition, like the previous editions, will be invaluable for corporates, practicing advocates, accounting professionals, company secretaries as well as the judiciary.

    — Justice Ruma Pal
    Former Judge, Supreme Court of India

    With the Companies Act, 2013 coming into force, practitioners and serious students alike have waited with bated breath for Ramaiya's commentary. The Act, having covered new areas and, in the process, having given rise to numerous doubts and difficulties, the need was felt, more than ever before, for an aid to facilitate a clear understanding. This edition provides the requisite clarity and comprehensiveness that Ramaiya, as the definitive treatise on the subject, has manifested for decades. The comparisons with the 1956 Act, the explanations for the changes, and the interpretative challenges have been handled in a manner that has stood the test of time.

    — M. Damodaran
    Chairman, Excellence Enablers Pvt. Ltd. & Former Chairman, SEBI

    Ramaiya’s commentary has over many decades been the benchmark for any reference and research on the Companies Act.  Like all other previous editions, this one too will find a prominent place in every lawyer’s library for there is no other alternative in the depth of information and analysis on the Companies Act, 2013.

    — V. Lakshmikumaran
    Managing Partner, Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan

    As always, Ramaiya is a must have for every lawyer. The depth of research and insight it contains makes it invaluable. With the coming into force of the new Companies Act, 2013 and the new complexities in this area of law, Ramaiya becomes even more invaluable.

    — Zia Mody
    Founding Partner, AZB & Partners

    Since its first edition in 1956, Ramaiya and company law have been inseparable in the minds of Indian corporate lawyers. Ramaiya’s Guide to the Companies Act has remained the most admired volume – perhaps the most cited work in Indian company courts
    and tribunals. The Guide has stood out strongly and exceptionally in every way - its meticulous research, well written commentary, description of legislative intent, succinct coverage of Indian and foreign judicial precedents, procedural aspects, notifications, clarifications and circulars. It is a wonderful compilation of Indian company law. It will be no exaggeration to say that this book is the most productive investment for practitioners in corporate laws.
