Dear siddharth,

The newtonian laws have proved valid for all mechanical problems not involving speeds comparable with the speed of light and not involving atomic particles. 

Newton's laws are valid only in an inertial reference frame. Any reference frame that is in uniform motion with respect to an inertial frame is also an inertial frame, i.e. Galilean invariance.
