It is now 150 days since my complained was admitted. I was asked to send second notice to OP as they did not reply the first notice. Thus the forum delayed along with the OP. The OP filed wakalatnama after 130 days. So much delay has been done with me. So after 130 days ( not just 45 days) I was asked to file affidavit in evidence. The OP took one copy of mine. On the next hearing the OP was not seen. Again a date has been given to file affidavirt in evidence to OP.
Now shall I pray for ex-parte proceeding/ judgement if the OP fails to appear on next date?
When Supreme court judgement says not to allow wriiten version after 45 days, does it mean that the OP be allowed to file affidavit in evidence thereafter? Then what is the significance of not allowing written version after 45 days if the OP ia allowed to take part in the subsequent proceedings? If this discretion of the forum is extended, one day the forum will ask the OP to file their written arguments ( bypassing written version and affidavit in evidence) straight after one year of filling the complaint and making the complainant to appear all proceedings.
I feel cheated by the consumer forum.
