IndianKanoon - search engine for Indian laws and court judgements
The Indian Kanoon website is absolutely wonderful. It has all High Courts, the Supreme Court, statutes and more, all on a free-text search.
Plus it’s 100% free (so far).
The Bombay High Court reports go all the way back to 1868 (no idea how they got that). The beauty is that for every case there’s an inbuilt noter-up that lists all the cases where that precedent has been cited, followed etc. You also get a list of the cases referred to in that decision. The material is available both as raw text and in PDF format.
You can search by the name of the case, text, citation — in fact, by almost anything. The search engine seems to be powered by google, or something very similar. It is very powerful and blindingly fast. The interface is uncluttered and very easy to use.
Of course, there are no headnotes, but that’s a relatively small price to pay for a comprehensive, free database offering in-built research aids and multiple formats.
Highly recommended. But please remember to cross-check; there may be text errors (the IK forum has some complaints).
