Manupatra Taxonomy is a hierarchical structure which lists the topics and the sub topics under that. The aim is that each topic covered, broadly reflects the terms associated with it as a user might expect to find it in major textbooks. It will aid the user in choosing keywords consistently and appropriately.

The structure is created by identifying basic concepts and topics. These concepts and topics do not necessarily represent a complete subject area but define groupings of terms with similar characteristics. It is like a map which will help a user locate what they are looking for.

  • First level displays the Subjects of taxonomy
  • On click of + button it will list the Sub Topics, to directly go to the judgments under a Sub Topic click on > button.

Please Note:

Judgments appearing under each sub topic is not an exhaustive list on the topic. These are considered important by our editors.

To look for more judgments click on Cited in Manu. This will give you list of judgments where the subject judgment has been cited in, to help you identify similar cases.

In case of any clarification, please feel free to get in touch.

Case Map


What is Case Map?

Case Map provides a Visual view of the top 20 cases, with respect to a subject case [appears in central circle]. These top 20 cases  are Cases Cited by the Subject Case (referred) and Cases where the Subject Case has been Cited (mentioned in) . This pictorial depiction of the relationships between cases also helps identify other cases which may be of relevance.

From where can Case Map be accessed?

To access the Case Map , click on the Case Map link  appearing on the top of the judgment. You may also access the case map from the Citing Reference field. Click on the link to launch the pictorial view.

What all is displayed on the Initial View of the Case map?

When you first view the Case Map, the subject case is displayed in the centre of the screen and around it are cases with which it has a relationship (referred or mentioned in)

How can one identify that which all cases are cited by the subject Case and which all cases cited the subject case?

Cases Cited by the subject Case appear on the left-hand side of the screen and Cases which cite the subject case appear on the right.

What is the ordering structure of the cases displayed on the Case Map?

  • Cases are ordered on basis of no. of times each is cited in a clockwise direction. Case cited maximum no of times appears first on top in a clockwise direction.
  • On the left side, the case which has been Cited by the subject case maximum no of times appears on the top. In this eg.  His Holiness Kesavanand Bharti is on top since it has been cited max no of times.
  • On the right side D.S Nakara case has cited Minerva Mils maximum no of times.

What are the different Relationships that can be depicted from the Case Map?

Following is the description of the line COLORS which show the connection between cases.

How can one see the relationship between the cases?

Clicking on the back button, takes you back to one case.

Clicking on the any of the Cases in Case Map will further launch the Case Map for the case selected.

Why are some cases which have been referred or mentioned in not appearing?

As Case Map only provides a Visual view of the top 20 most cited cases, with respect to a subject case [appears in central circle]. Therefore, you may not see other cases.

How often do you update the Case Map?

e.g.  a case has been mentioned in Minerva, which does not appear in the orbit?

Case Map works in real time and it gives visual view of the top 20 most cited cases, with respect to a subject case. Therefore, if a case doesn’t appear in the list of top 20 most cited cases, even if it has been mentioned, it will not appear on the visualization.
