What are Bare Acts, and why are they important?

It is referred to as ”Bare” Acts, because it only contains the words legislated by the Parliament or State Legislature as the case may by. It is different from a commentary, which interprets such Bare Acts.

As per the practice of law, if you desire to present your case to the court, you are required to quote the exact law, the remedy and the consequences of the violation of the said law. 

You might have heard of the phrase the law is a precise endeavour, a Bare Act, provides you with the exact preciseness that you need to explain your case to the court thoroughly.

The Law made by the Parliament of India is called Central Legislation and often referred to as Central Bare Acts. The Parliament has power to make laws on subjects mentioned in List 1 and 3 of the Schedule VII of the Constitution of India. The Parliament can also make laws on state subject under special circumstances.

Every State has its own legislature called Legislative Assembly. The Law made by the State Legislature is referred to as State Bare Acts. The State Legislature has power to legislate on subjects mentioned in List 2 and 3 of the Schedule VII of the Constitution of India.

In case of conflict between the Central and State Legislation, the Central Legislation Prevails.

Importance of Rules and Regulation

The rules and regulations of a Bare Act are drafted so you know exactly how to implement the sections of a Bare Act to a particular case or scenario.

If a person follows all the rules and regulations correctly, then the process of getting relief from the court becomes relatively easy. Even the courts appreciate the usage of all the rules and regulations as it makes their job easier.

Rules and Regulations are subordinate legislation made by the authorities and bodies other than the Parliament and State Legislature. The Rules and Regulations get their authority from the Central Act or State Act as the case may be.
