The words used in the legal world have different meanings in different Jurisdictions and also in the schemes of various Acts/Legislations. For example, the normal dictionary meaning of the word ‘publication’ is the act of declaring or announcing to the public. However, in the law of tort it means the communication of defamatory words or gestures to someone other than the person defamed. Our sincere endeavour is to increase general legal literacy of a layman. For specific meaning of any word/expression, relevant Act/Legislation may be referred to or expert legal opinion be obtained in the background facts of the specific cases and/or circumstances.
