No society can exist without Business & Law. The Legal regime operating in society ensures that every business enterprisefunctions in accordance with the canons of law. Every business enterprise, whether a multinational, medium or small, must conform to the legal standards, set by the Government to achieve its aims and objects. This is imperative for efficient and healthy functioning of any organization. Law helps to know about the rights and responsibilities which need to be borne in mind by the managements running a business. In India there are a host of legal regulatory mechanisms relating to business, like theIndian Contract Act ; The Companies Act; Foreign Exchange Management Act;Consumer Protection Act; Competition Law etc. All these laws play very important role in the orderly development of trade and commerce in the country. With the adoption of new economic policy by the Govt. in 1991, a need has been felt to prohibit anti-competitive business practices, regulation of insurance and banking sector, tax laws that promote a healthy growth of business enterprises, regulate imports and exports and industrial laws to harmonise labour management relations. In fact, the list of legislations in the business domain is so long that it will not be possible to cover them under one landscape.
