Legal Aspects
 
Legal aspects are an indispensable part of a successful business environment in any country. They reflect the policy framework and the mind set of the Governmental structure of that country. They ensure that every company is functioning as per the statutory framework of the country. Every enterprise must take into account this legal set up while framing the basic aims and objectives of its company. This is because, it is necessary for efficient and healthy functioning of the organisation and helps it to know about the rights, responsibilities as well as the challenges that it may have to face.

In India, the most important law which regulates all aspects relating to a company is the Companies Act,1956. It contains provisions relating to formation of a company, powers and responsibilities of the directors and managers, raising of capital, holding company meetings, maintenance and audit of company accounts, powers of inspection and investigation of company affairs, reconstruction and amalgamation of a company and even winding up of a company.

The Indian Contract Act,1872, is another legislation which regulates all the transactions of a company. It lays down the general principles relating to the formation and enforceability of contracts; rules governing the provisions of an agreement and offer; the various types of contracts including those of indemnity and guarantee, bailment and pledge and agency. It also contains provisions pertaining to breach of a contract.

The other major legislations are:- the Industries (Development and Regulation) Act 1951; Trade Unions Act; the Competition Act, 2002; the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996; the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA),1999; laws relating to intellectual property rights; as well as laws relating to labour welfare.
