Can it be defects in the film?

    Hi,
    I have been shooting with color films for 4 years now, but had never
    tried B&W film. Recently I purchased a couple of the B&W films of a
    local (Indian) make. This film is speed 100, but has no DX coding!!!
    On getting them developed from a renowned processing lab I found that
    both films have defects in the form of black spots or scratches on the
    film.
    I wanted to know whether or not this could be inherent defects in the
    manufacturing of the film or are these defects introduced on
    development. Could these be sediments of chemicals left after
    developing the film from the lab?
    Also is there any other way of correcting these defects apart from
    negative-scanning?
    Your judgement is appreciated.
    Regds,
    BABS

    Thanx a lot Alan.
    Do u know if theres anyway of correcting this problem now? Since, I
    dont have any great snaps in that film, I dont mind experimenting on
    it and gaining some valuable experience.
    Also if you say that the problem may have been due to poor development
    process, then buying a better quality film like Kodak would make no
    difference right!? So I will have to try both: changing the lab as
    well as the film! :)
    Thanx nyway!
