In 1877, the Specific Relief act was enacted and put into force. This was amended in 1963 Whereas the contract act deals with contractual obligations, the specific relief act aims at providing for various legal remedies for violation of the contractual obligations. If A is illegally dispossessed of his house 'H', the specific relief act, provides for a specific remedy to get that very house H, not any other house or money compensation. That is specific relief. This is only an example. Various reliefs like injunctions, Rescission of contracts, Declaratory decrees,cancellation & Rectification of Instruments etc are provided for in the Act.
