Tags : chandigarh, consumers court, Postal dept Posted: Thursday , Jun 04, 2009 at 0325 hrs Chandigarh: Upholding the decision of the district forum, the UT State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission has dismissed the appeal of General Post Office (GPO) in Sector 17 against an order wherein they were directed to pay Rs 2,000 as compensation for an inadvertent delay in the Speed Post delivery.
The GPO, through its postmaster, was directed to pay double the amount of the Speed Post and Rs 2,000 as harassment charges in July last year to an MBA aspirant who couldnâ€™t appear for his entrance test in 2007 due to delay in the postal service.
The District Consumer Redressal Forum had directed the postmaster of GPO to also pay Rs 1,500 as litigation charges. Aggrieved by the order, the GPO had moved the State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission challenging the decision.
The complainant, 22-year-old Munish Kumar, claimed to have sent his application form for Management Aptitude Test (MAT) through the Speed Post on November 14, 2007, to be delivered in New Delhi. The last date of receipt of the form was November 17 while the examination was to be held in December.
