As per brief order of State commission as follows
No other point was raised during the course of arguments. It is a clear case of deficiency in service. The complainants cannot be compelled to wait for more time for completion of construction and development work and delivery of possession as the complainants have already suffered a lot. Resultantly, it is held that the complainants are entitled to recover the total amount deposited by them Rs.24,11,528/- with interest at the rate of 12% per annum from the date of respective deposits till realization. Keeping in mind the un-necessary harassment and mental agony, suffered by the complainants as well as the amount spent in this litigation, it will be justified to award an amount of Rs.25,000/- as compensation on account of unnecessary harassment and mental agony and an amount of Rs.10,000/- as litigation expenses. I received Rs. 24,11,528/- as principal amount, 20,96,472/- as interest and 25,000/- and 10,000 as mental agony and legal expenses. Is there any tex liability because I heard that interest awarded by court now liable to tax https://www.taxmanagementindia.com/visitor/detail_article.asp?ArticleID=1439
