Determining the right Jurisdiction for a Consumer Complaint:
Jurisdiction of Consumer Compliant is determined by both territorial and pecuniary aspects:
Territorial Jurisdiction of a consumer complaint:
The place where Cause of action arises is the chief determinant of jurisdiction in a consumer complaint matter. In case it is difficult to establish “where” the cause of action has arisen, the place where a subsequent cause of action has arisen can be taken into consideration. Territorial jurisdiction can also be determined by the subject matter of the suit if it is immovable property. There can also be a pre-recorded agreement on jurisdiction in case of a dispute. Also, an agent/ agency/ dealers/ franchisee extends the ambit of jurisdiction against the company.
Pecuniary Jurisdiction of a consumer complaint:
The Consumer Protection Act, 1986 is a standout amongst other important legislations endorsed for the benefit of the consumers and has become a remedy for consumers throughout the nation and. The act circles around the complaint, the complainant, defects in goods, removal of the defects, replacement of goods etc. Thus, protecting the interests of a consumer. The act structures a three-tier system for redressal of the disputes District Forum, the State Commission and the National Commission for the redressal of grievances of consumers.
The Consumer Protection Act 1986 is the Magna Carta for consumer protection. It is well drafted and the definitions are held strongly. The definition of Consumer under Section 2(1)(d) gives the act a wide scope of applicability:
Therefore, buying goods for commercial purpose does not make one qualify as a consumer under the act.
India has adopted a simple and specific route for redressal of consumer disputes which is laid down under the Consumer Protection Act, 1986. This legislation provides a platform for protecting consumers against exploitation, for the hearing of complaints, and for settlement/ compensation. The Act stipulates the responsibilities of goods and services provider. To speed up the redressal process, the Act envisages creation of quasi-judicial bodies at district, state as well as national level. The consumer is entitled to protection against dangerous, dishonest and unfair practices. While, at the same time, goods and services provider has a right to a just and fair trial. Our consumer disputes lawyers in Dehradun deal in cases of consumers as well as that of services and goods provider.
