It is widely believed that legal education is necessary only for one who wants to pursue law as a profession. But that is not true. Basic legal education is very important for all in their daily lives. Basic knowledge of law will help one to understand and tackle several problems, from consumer protection to fundamental rights. Knowledge of law informs you of your rights and your responsibilities towards society.

Information about the law enables one to reason out in an adverse situation. For an instance, a person who is caught by a police constable without cause and is threatened arrest will plead with the policeman not to arrest him as he has done nothing wrong. But if he has a little legal knowledge that he cannot be arrested without any warrant, he would behave differently instead of pleading.

Below are some basic laws that everyone must be aware of:

  1. While buying an immovable property (flat or land)-

A legal search of the property must be done. This is important because supposedly, if one bought a house without public notice or inspection, and it turned out that the owner did not have a clear title, it will obviously create legal problems.

  1. Cheque Bouncing-

Cheque bouncing has now become a serious offence. The moment a cheque bounces with the endorsement “insufficient Funds”, one should go to a lawyer and send the person a legal notice demanding his money. This has to be done within 30 days of the cheque having bounced. On receiving the notice the cheque issuer is required by law to pay the money within 15 days.

  1. Registration of documents-

Registration of all legal agreements related to immovable property worth more than Rs. 100/- is compulsory. These include Lease Agreements, Sale Deeds, Gift Deeds, etc.

  1. Police complaints-

While making police complaints, one should always take help from a lawyer. This is necessary because if the complaint ends up in court, the police complaint serves as an important piece of evidence.

  1. Limitation-

There is a limitation period for filing every civil and criminal case which one has to be aware of. Failure to adhere to the limitation period can result in a person’s losing his legal right to sue permanently.

I’m impressed, I have to admit. Genuinely rarely should i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail about the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is an element that insufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted we came across this during my look for something with this.
