Abstract

A Statute can be defined as a set of laws that are passed by the legislature. Further the provisions of law written under the statute are enacted by the legislature. The classification of the same can be done under 3 main categories. The categories are Amendment, Consolidation and Codification of Statutes. Amendment means to make changes into the existing laws according to the requirement of the time. Consolidation refers to the process of bringing together the provisions of law relating to a particular subject of law. Codification on the other hand means to exhaustively describe the provisions of law regarding a particular subject of law. The article below discusses the stated topics in depth and suggests how interpretation is an essential requirement.
