Influential Role in the Development of the Law

  1. Comp Cas (CC) and ITR have not only been a witness and critic of the development of company law and income-tax law over the last eight decades, but also influenced amendments to the law.

  2. Our editors’ commentaries on new legislations have been used as guidance by legislators and administrators.

  3. Our annual publication, A. N. Aiyar’s Indian Tax Laws, is the only publication of its kind to have traversed the development of the Indian Income-tax Act since its enactment in 1961.

  4. Sales Tax Cases (STC), launched in 1950, was the first national journal on the law of sales tax and is the only journal of its class to this day. It was later rechristened VAT & Service Tax Cases (VST) in keeping with the introduction of Value Added Tax law in place of Sales Tax law.

Our Story

   Prior to founding Company Law Institute of India, A.N. Aiyar was an associate editor of Indian Cases, India’s premier law reports from 1926, and rose to become its Chief Editor.

    In 1931 A.N. Aiyar launched a fortnightly report dedicated to Company Law, Banking and Insurance called Company Cases (CC) which gives CLI its name and soon became the most referred to journal of its class. CC is continually expanding its scope to cover new branches of law, such as, arbitration, debt recovery, foreign exchange law and intellectual property, so far as they impact companies and directors.

    In 1933 A.N. Aiyar stepped down as editor of Indian Cases and launched the Income Tax Reports (ITR) to serve the cause of tax administrators, taxpayers, lawyers and chartered accountants in the field of direct tax law. A few years after that Indian Cases wound up — perhaps a testimony to A.N. Aiyar’s contribution. In 1939 ITR was recognized by the Income Tax Department as its authorized journal and has ever since earned the reputation of being the most authentic, accurate, lucid and the most easily accessible source of law reports of High Court judgments and select Appellate Tribunal orders.
