Rules, Rule 2(g) - Will not find the requirement of securing an affidavit from the supplier as unreasonable - It has surely an object to secure, namely, that a technical manufacturer who is a

there is a requirement under the Rule to spell out the name and address of the supplier, it cannot be merely left to be a cosmetic exercise - The name and address of the supplier given shall
be of a person who has committed himself to supply to the applicant and that commitment can obtain only through an affidavit as insisted by the authority.(180) P.L.R.
