Invitation to offer

The offer should be distinguished from an invitation to offer. An offer is the concluding look of willingness by the offerer to be bound by his offer should the party chooses to accept it. Where a party. without showing his concluding willingness. proposes certain footings on which he is willing to negociate. he does non do an offer. but invites merely the other party to do an offer on those footings. This is the basic differentiation between offer and invitation to offer.

The show of articles with a monetary value in it in a self-service store is simply an invitation to offer. It is in no sense an offer for sale. the credence of which constitutes a contract. In this instance. Smt. Prakash in choosing some articles and nearing the teller for payment merely made an offer to purchase the articles selected by her. If the teller does non accept the monetary value. the interested purchaser can non oblige him to sell.

An understanding in restraint of trade / concern / professional is null undersection 27 of the Indian contract act. 1872. But an understanding of service by which a individual binds himself during the term of the understanding non to take service with anyone else straight or indirectly to advance any concern in direct competition with that of his employer is non in restraint of trade.

The bags could non be manufactured because of work stoppage by the workers and Akhilesh failed to provide the said bags to Shekhar. Decide whether Akhilesh can be exempted from
liability under the commissariats of The Indian Contract Act. 1872.


Delivery of Bags

Harmonizing to Section 56 of Indian Contract Act. 1872 when the public presentation of a Contract becomes impossible or improper subsequent to its formation. the contract becomes Void. this is termed as ‘supervening impossibility’ ( i. e. impossibleness which does non be at the clip of doing the contract. but which arises later ) .

But impossibleness of public presentation is. as a regulation. non an alibi from public presentation. It means that When a individual has promised to make something. he must execute his promise unless the Performance becomes perfectly impossible. Whether a promise becomes perfectly Impossible depends upon the facts of each instance.

The public presentation does non go perfectly impossible on history of work stoppages. lockout and civil perturbations and the contract in such a instance is non discharged unless otherwise agreed by the parties to the contract. .

In this instance Mr. Akhilesh could non present the bags as promised because of work stoppage by the workers. This trouble in public presentation can non be considered as impossible of public presentation pulling Section 56 and therefore Mr. Akhilesh is apt to Mr. Shekhar for negligence of contract.
