“If a count were to be made of the ten topmost lawyers of the world, I have no doubt that Mr. Palkhivala’s name would find a prominent place therein” – H.R.Khanna
Mr. Nani Palkhivala was a multi-faceted personality-a lawyer par excellence, philanthropist, diplomat, author and a pioneer in the field of law. His authorship series, “Law and practice of Income Tax” as well as commentaries on the same have since set the benchmark in taxation and is still the guidebook for all tax enthusiasts in the country.
Hailed as the “Gift of God to modern India” by Shri. Rajaji Palkhivala was the epitome of persuasion, precision of argument, in depth understanding of law as well as analytical, strategic, charismatic and successful advocacy.
There can be no better way of sustaining the memory of perhaps India’s most extraordinary advocate than by instituting an annual tax moot court competition in his name.The Nani Palkhivala Memorial National Tax Moot Court Competition hosted by School of Law, SASTRA Deemed To be University is a tribute to this great man.
