if the advocate has taken such a hefty amount from you as fee for filing at consumer court,he has defenitely cheated you.
for claims upto 20 lakhs,the fee is only Rs.200/-
your case is sustainable before a consumer court within 2 years of the cause of action.

If the correspondence with the insurer is in currency, the procedure is to file a complaint with their regional office and wait for thirty days. On 31 st day of the receipt of your complaint by the insurer, if you do not receive a reply or unsatisfactory reply you can straight away go over the insurance ombudsman with all records of the correspondence, If the ombudsman passes an award, the isurer will have to pay hard and fast for, Ombudsaman is a referree selected by the insurers and the insurers cannot turn down his order in the first place. If the insured is disappointed there too then he is free to go over to consumer forum, then civil court etc. Now the victim has not exhausted his chance but straight away went to the forum. Moreover, no fees for ombudsman cases and lawyers are strictly prohibited.

Should I go to the consumer forum directly or first meet the ombudsman and see if he can do something positive??
The case has not yet been filed in comsumer forum.

I shall draft a letter addressed to their regional office and wait for thirty days. On thirty first day, you can address to the concerened ombudsman which I shall guide you afterwards. Send the letter by speed post and preserve all the documents in order to adduce as evidence to the Ombudsman later.regards vaidya

By "regional office" you mean to say the regional office of the insurance company.
Would like to say that I had mailed all the details to the AVP Mr Prabhakaran, in Chennai.
The discussion went on for 6-8 months (Jan'2011-July 2011)and everytime the AVP said that its 2 yr old matter and it can't be sorted out.
What should I do?
