How do I find an Indian case?


Given a case citation, example:

Virsa Singh vs The State Of Punjab 1958 AIR 465 

Check Cardiff Index for the jurisdiction. 




As this is an Indian case, use Manupatra

Upon entering Manupatra, click on "Legal Search", and "Indian Citation". Fill in the relevant details as demonstrated below, before clicking "search".




There tends to be multiple results, as cases from the various state courts of India share the same citation. Click on the appropriate one.
