State Legal Framework

The State legal framework looks at local acts that could help answer legal queries.

Just like the National Legal Framework, these not only put across the law, but also put them forward in simple language that is straightforward, user-friendly and transparent. The content in italics is meant to comprehend, clarify and interpret the law, while the content in the normal font conveys the law verbatim and can be used officially.
