Common Law in India; Statute-of-Frauds Rule

I’ve been reading Setalvad’s Common Law in India. It is so cogently written, and describes our legal system with elegance and modesty. Why did the style of writing die? Actually, the reason I was looking at Setalvad is to understand if our Contracts Act has a statute-of-frauds rule (that something must be in writing for it to be relied on). Setalvad is silent on this point, and I don’t have access here to the Mulla Treatise. Does anyone know the answer?

Yes, the Statute of Frauds is applicable in India.
