It can be stated that Pith and Substance denotes the true nature of law. The doctrine places emphasis on the fact that it is the real subject matter which is to be challenged and not its incidental effects on another field. Pith denotes the ‘essence of something’ or the ‘true nature’, while substance states ‘the most significant or essential part of something’. Hence, it can be stated that the very doctrine of pith and substance relates to finding out the true nature of a statute.
