IV) Yes I think I should tell my employees that my usual materials are 9% less durable but still meets industry standards. V) Yes I think I probably will because it is still durable.

I)The facts given in the problem are similar to the case of Bharati knitting co. v DHL worldwide express courier division of Airfrieght [1995 (5) scale 142(Sc)].where in the supreme court upheld the disicion of national commission.that...
