SIFY had an opportunity to appeal with State Consumer Redressal Commission, but failed to do so within the period of 30 days from the date of receipt of copy ofÂ District ForumÂ order… i.e. till first week of February. But state commission records, nowhere include any such matter till date:!:
And asÂ they stillÂ havn’t paid me the compensation of Rs 8,200/-Â yet… so its time to move back to District Forum and enforce the order against them under section 25 of Consumer Protection Act, 1986.
Further Section 27 will also come in to play, which states:
“Where a trader or a person against whom a complaint is made 2[or the complainant] fails or omits to comply with any order made by the District Forum, the State Commission or the National Commission, as the case may be, such trader or person [or complainant] shall be punishable with imprisonment for a term which shall not be less than one month but which may extend to three years, or with fine which shall not be less than two thousand rupees but which may extend to ten thousand rupees, or with both” :p
