What is the difference between Act & Rule
From India, Raipur
Dear grpatel and emalda

In my opinion, one should take school education very seriously, as it offers a firm foundation for higher learning. The answer to your question lies in the school subjects like Civics or Indian Polity.

As you must be aware that a government, or more specifically the Indian government, rests on three 'pillars', namely,
  1. Legislature
  2. Executive, and the
  3. Judiciary

The "Legislature" frames the Laws or the Acts, for proper governance of its citizen.

The Acts are implemented by the "Executive" by formulating Rules. Thus for Every Act you"ll find corresponding sets of Rules, wherein you"ll find the procedure for implementation, various types of Forms identified by numbers or alphabets (like Form 13, Form D), Registers etc. which are necessary for compliance of the Acts.

Finally, the Judiciary is to ensure that Laws are implemented fairly. It also occasionally interpret the Laws, and comes up with its own "Rulings" which are called "Case laws", and these have the same force of Law as the provisions in the original Acts.

Hope the above helps in demystifying the subject matter.

warm regards.
