This Paper discusses the provisions pertaining to Freedom of Trade in India and United States. It embarks on a comparative analysis of the two regimes in the field of Freedom of Trade. A comparative approach to the law of different systems has several advantages. It may be advantageous to assist domestic legal systems facing hardship in identifying guiding principles or legal rules. There are apparent similarities between India and the US which make a comparison of their respective legal systems appropriate. However, there is no reason to suggest that the resemblance among these systems will enlighten one any less than the differences that exist among them. The paper concludes by highlighting the similarities that exist between the two jurisdictions and the lessons to be learned from the enforcement of the free trade clauses.
