In the said matter, the Court noted that the woman suffering from mental stress due to the wrong cutting of her hair, the woman went through depression, trauma, and anxiety, and faced the threat of loss of further or anticipated assignments.

In 2018, the woman filed a complaint against ITC Limited, alleging a deficiency in service on their part for cutting her hair against her instructions.

She alleged that she had instructed the stylist to cut her hair in a particular style, but the stylist had shortened her hair without following her instructions.

In its judgement, the Court directs ITC Ltd. to pay a compensation of ₹2,00,00,000/- (Rupees Two Crores only) to the complainant for the wrong cutting of her hair and negligent hair treatment.

However, ITC Ltd. challenged the order before the Supreme Court.
