Empanelling of Retired Judges in Consumer Forum

This petition had 6 supporters

Sir, I had filed a case getting harassed by an automobile manufacturer in District Forum, Bilaspur, in 2013 and till even after 5 years the Case in pending and still daily proceeding are going on with opposite party yet to file the reply. Every time it happens that the forum is not complete and a next date of hearing is given for about last 5 years.

In the present scenario, the District & State Consumer Redressal Forum is presidised by Retired Judges of District and High Court alongwith two members appointed by committee for disposal of the Consumer cases.

It has well noticed that the functioning of these Retired Judges is not in the intrest of the suffering consumers rather they are more bothered in fulfilling their own personal interest post retirement viz medical treatment, construction of their residence, marriage of children's etc instead finalising the Consumer disputes due the pendency list is growing day by day, moreover they have more access to be influenced for their personal interests, as they have a small tenure hence seen fulfilling own requirements.

As per Law the Consumer disputes are to be disposed within 6 months from the date of admission, but it has been found that it is never followed & none of the cases are finalised within the time span.

Sir, I hereby do request the Indian Law Minister to take immediate action for appointment of Proper Judges in the District & State Consumer Redressal Forum's, So as to provide relief to the bonafide Petitioners of these Forums within time span & even stop the malpractice by the sellers, manufacturers, service providers etc in India.

I look forward for support of atleast 2lacs of Peoples for my petition in helping by notifying and Convincing the Law Minister of India about the present scenario of the District and State Consumer Redressal Forum's.
