All that is said by the court by the way i.e statements of law which go beyond the requirements of the particular case in hand and lay down a rule which is either irrelevant or unnecessary for the decision of that case are called obiter dicta. To put it in brief, when points not directly connected with a case are discussed in a judgment, these remarks constitute obiter dicta. These, when made by superior courts are however binding on the subordinate courts.
