The law report Supreme Court Cases™, started in 1969 and now running into over 260 volumes, is the leading law report of India with a very wide circulation, and is cited in all courts in India and in all standard works of law. The standards of legal reporting set by it, have earned the respect and admiration of the entire legal community. EBC has done pioneering work, by creating for the first time a complete index/digest of the case law of the Indian Supreme Court in its 35 volume publication, 'The Complete Digest of Supreme Court Cases'. The work comprehensively covers the judgments delivered by the Supreme Court since its inception in 1950 till date. The second edition of this monumental work is currently under print.
