Law is a rule of conduct or procedure established by custom, agreement, or authority. In other words it is the body of rules and principles governing the affairs of a society. Law constitutes Acts, Statues, Amendments, Notification, Rules, Bill in Parliament, State Laws, Central Acts, Legal Opinion and Advice
Legislation that has been passed by both the Houses of Parliament and has been approved by the President thus becoming a law and termed as ACT. In other words bills passed in parliament become ACT. Act is the intention of law describing the applicability, definitions governing provisions and fines, penalties and the way it is to be applied.
Rules are the standard methods and procedures in relation to any provision contained in the act and these are framed by the inherent powers given in the act. In case of any contradiction in rules and act the provisions of Act prevail and apply accordingly.
