After a day he left the college.

The establishment of Consumer Courts at various levels is basically to meet the international standards set by United Nations Organisation.Calling for members from various fields is to build up a jury system by giving a power of vote to non judicial members. This is a fine mix of judicial opinion and public opinion at large.The present rules as to procedure and practice to be adopted is inadequate. Moreover, the term deficiency of service in contradistinction to doctrines of arbitrariness, breach of contract, unconscienable bargain, monopoly, restrictive trade practices is not clearly defined. The Supreme Court offcourse had made an attempt in Ravneet Singh Bagga judgement but it is not sufficient. We want more such judgments defining the jurisdiction, distinctions, limits etc of the Consumer Court in all fields of services.
