Not everything said by a Judge when giving judgment that constitutes a precedent: Supreme Court

In his inimitable words, Hon’ble Justice Sanjiv Khanna has said that “not everything said by a Judge when giving judgment that constitutes a precedent” and that “(t)he only thing in a Judge’s decision binding as a legal precedent is the principle upon which the case is decided and, for this reason, it is important to analyse a decision and isolate from it the obiter dicta”.

A short order and surely worth reading.
