Is the principle bound by the acts of an agent who exceeds his authority ?
A authorises B to buy 500 sheep for him. B buys 500 sheep and 200 lambs for one sum of Rs.6000. A may repudiate the whole transaction.

Where an agent does more than what he is authorised to do, and what he does is beyond the scope of his authority and cannot be separated from what is within it, the principal is not bound to recognise the transaction.
