In Niranjan Shankar Golikari v. Century Spg. and Mfg. Co. Ltd.9, the Supreme Court held that trade restrictions may be good if they are reasonably necessary for the freedom of trade. The court ruled as follows: In Hukmi Chand v. Jaipur Ice & Oil Mills Co.12, the Jaipur Bench of the Rajasthan High Court upheld the validity of the agreement between a departing partner and the other partners, with the former selling his share of the goodwill and agreeing not to conduct similar cases on the adjacent property. who came to his share. The Court has also held that the burden of proving that the restrictions imposed in a trade restriction agreement are proportionate lies with the party it considers appropriate. With regard to the exception to the section on the sale of goodwill, where a person sells the goodwill of his business, he may give the buyer of goodwill an undertaking not to pursue the type of business from which the goodwill is sold. Such an agreement restricts the customer seller, but is also valid to protect the interests of the customer buyer for whom he provided the consideration. If there is no sale of the goodwill of an enterprise, an agreement not to operate such an enterprise would be contrary to public policy and therefore void. Therefore, the scope of the exception in section 27 is limited.

Also, it would only work as long as the buyer or a person deriving the title from him continues to run a business for life. In addition, the restrictive agreement would expire when the goodwill expires. One of the principles is that a gentleman does not have the right to prevent his servant from offering competition after the end of the employment relationship, but he is entitled to adequate protection against the exploitation of trade secrets. In Mason v. Provident Clothing Co of the House of Lords, the House of Lords did not allow an employer to detain its advertiser for a period of three years after the end of his service. Viscount HALDANE LC stressed that the possibility of soliciting customers is a natural gift and is not due to special training from the employer. If they had merely asked him not to engage in advertisements in the field where he had actually contributed to the development of the goodwill of their company or in an area limited to places where the knowledge he had acquired in the course of his employment could clearly have been used to their detriment, they would have obtained the right to retain him within those limits. On the other hand, in Fitch v.

Dewes, the House of Lords allowed a pact by which a clerk of the lawyer was recycled from the exercise within a 7-mile radius of the city, which was reasonably necessary to protect the interests of both parties. But under no circumstances would the court allow clauses against competitions. In Attwood v. Lamont, the employer, he led several departments related to sewing, etc. And the clerk was just the superintendent of the tailor`s shop. The agreement with him was that after he ceased to be an employee, he would not get involved in any of the employer-run stores in addition to carving within a 10-mile radius. The Court of Appeal considered that the agreement was not only abnormally broad but also restrictive of competition. YOUNGER LJ quoted the following passage from LORD PRAKER`s speech in Morris v. Saxelby. The reason and the only reason an employee maintains such a restriction is that the employer has a certain right of decency, whether in the nature of the business context or in the nature of trade secrets, reasonably necessary to protect those restrictions, having regard to an employee`s duties. Such a restriction has never been maintained if it is directed solely against the prohibition of competition or against the use of the personal skills and knowledge acquired by the worker in his employer`s undertaking. CONCLUSION; As early as 1958, the Law Commission of India, in its 13th report, strongly recommended amending Article 27 because the restrictions it imposes on Indian companies and contracts are economically undesirable.

More than five decades after that report, and in the face of legislative reluctance to accept the Law Commission`s recommendation, it appears that a change is not the only way to make India`s position on trade restriction economically viable, and that the law in its current form also allows and imposes an “adequacy” investigation. Whenever the issue of trade restriction in the Indian context arises, the first aspect emphasized is that the Indian position differs from the common law in that it precludes an adequacy study. Therefore, the researcher would like to conclude that instead of relying solely on section 27 of the Indian Contracts Act, there should be a provision to include “relevance”. # Gujarat Bottling co Ltd v.

The court said: # The clause is good because it does not restrict any profession, trade or business. The restriction of cooperation with a competitor during the period of employment as a parent is not a restriction of the profession, but a restriction against the abuse of faith and loyalty. A full-time employee, if he wants to be diligent and loyal, can obviously only serve the master. The clause merely applies this condition of employment and is in fact not restrictive.
