Founded in 2000, Manupatra is one of the pioneers in online legal research in India and one of the largest legal database providers online. Available online, as compact discs, and in print, the service is now available as an app for Windows Phone.

Manupatra provides corporate, legal, taxation, and business policy content across all subjects of law and while it started off as being an India centric database, today Manupatra covers case laws from US, UK, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Pakistan.


The Windows Phone app allows you to access the Manupatra database anytime you need it – during your research, in court, or working with a client. The legal research resource gives you instant access to an entire set of Indian Case laws and Acts and allows you to search the comprehensive library.

You can search via keywords, citation, title, and acts. The app allows you to read documents enriched with editorial inputs with Zoom In/Zoom Out feature and hyperlinked to Cases and Acts. You can also save recent research and documents to folders for use later. The app allows you to save documents to OneDrive for later use or to download on your device as .docx for editing or annotating as you'd prefer.

Manupatra is an indispensable resource for legal professionals, and is updated daily. While the app is free, the service is available as a paid subscription only. If you are a legal professional or require research in the domain frequently, give it a whirl and let us know how you like it.
