[CS book Law Labz]"Only this much"-Company, Economic & Labour, Securities Law & Compliances BOOK [charts/notes]Company Secretary /CA/CWA / MBA / Law

Yes... This Diwali has gifted the 1st Book on Company Law, Economic & Labour Law and Securities Law and Compliances, ALL in a Single Book to enjoy reading. It covers all 3 subjects of CS Executive Program Module - II also. See get the glimpse of few chapters in all subjects.

Dear Readers,
While we were students studying for the exams we faced a severe shortage of books that made studying the course fun and interesting. All books we came across had a highly ‘Professional’ approach. We realised that this was because the books were written by veterans with enormous years of experience, who are used to deciphering voluminous cryptography.
This book has been tailor made for readers and complied with a three fold objective:
  • To make reading interesting.
  • To bring out the important points and serve as an aid for remembering them, which would otherwise be lost in the mammoth theoretical ocean.
  • To serve as and aid from the examination point of view.

We advise students to use the Institute study material wherever they seek clarity.
We further would like to advise them to use Institute published Guideline answers to understand the expected pattern and presentation of answers.
Please feel free to share your thoughts and critical analysis at & mails.
Wishing you all the very best for your oncoming exams!


I like doing things that I am passionate about but ‘Reading theory’ (Yawn!) just doesn’t fit the bill. It is a general consensus that Reading theory is as boring as eating Plain rice. It has been our endeavor (me and my fellow chef!) to make it a mouth watering and lip smacking ‘Biryani’ (Only this Much!). To make this dish we needed the right recipe and ingredients.
Now let me introduce you to my TEAM:
: R. Anand, who is very particular about quality, hygiene & calorific value of every ingredient added in the dish, handled the legal content editing. Yes, he is also the Gold Medalist in Dec 2006 ICSI Final Exams and is currently working in SEBI as Manager.
Chef: CS.Divya Mittal working for Law Labz, has been the wheels and driving force behind this dish. She is a connoisseur and facilitator for ensuring the creation of this dish.
Chef: Mr.Venkatraman, Licentiate ICSI has been our creative garnisher and is the official taster of this dish.
SO, there should be "Only this Much"… & this is only about that much.
This is Head Chef: A.N.S. Vijay working for Law Labz (also Licentiate ICSI) and I am eagerly awaiting your secret ingredients!!
Though great care has been taken in preparing this dish, we cannot rule out the possibility that some may not find it to taste. We would be grateful to those readers to point out portions not to their taste, so that we could use it in the next edition of the dish.
