Civil law in India

Civil law comprise of a set of rules, procedures, regulations and judgments that aid in solving the disputes of civil nature. Civil matters in India are primarily governed by the Code of Civil Procedure 1908 (CPC) which is a procedural law pertaining to administration of civil proceedings in India. This law lays down the procedure for filing of suits, written statements, evidences, documents, summons, etc. Apart from the Civil Procedure Code 1908, civil law is also governed by specific Acts and Rules such as the Indian Contract Act 1872, Real Estate Regulation Act 2016, Negotiable Instruments Act 1881, etc.

Civil law in India can therefore be understood as a body of laws regulating ordinary private matters, as distinct from laws regulating criminal, political, or military matters. Unlike criminal matters, the degrees of punishment in case of civil offenses are generally penalized with monetary compensation. Civil laws in India include: family law, administrative law, contract law, property laws, tort law, business law, media law, intellectual property rights, sports law, tax law, consumer law, etc. which in general also provide the remedies comprising of payment of damages and compensation to the injured.
