      Format: Introduction & body part part are good but conclusion is missing.
      Language competency: Few grammar related mistakes. Ex- ” All those who advertise false……. product is (instead should have been used “are”) liable
      Presentation: Major portion is in good form but few words/portions are written in poor handwriting hence not legible.
      Content: Problems associated with misleading advertisements are well explained. But current check and balances available in the form of various acts/preventive bodies not explained. Few other cases could have been referred as well to showcase the strength/weakness of the existing framework. Measure suggested by you will make the process very slow as one has to review each advertisement before running. Unnecessary redtapism will creep in. Try to think more innovative ways to curb it.
