Clarification needed on procedure at State Commission
I have gone for appeal in State Consumer Commission. I have sent appeal papers through RPAD and the case has been registered but notice not sent to Opposite Parties.
Upon enquiry through phone they had told just send the lower court order and rest the commission will do what is required.
I approached Kerala State Commission in July and this is November. I was neither informed of the appeal number or any details provided.
Only when I called they told the appeal number.
But they have not sent notice. So I went to commission and asked what is the matter.
Nobody has a single opinion as to why notice not sent.
Registrar, SDC, Bench Clerk finally all pointed towards judge. I wanted to ask judge but I did not get opportunity.
Now these are the questions I asked there but did not get an answer.
I expect authoritative replies here which can be helpful.
1. Will I have to appear in state commission on regular basis?
2. When will commission send notice to Opposite party?
3. How long will it take commission to decide the case, is there any time limit like 90 days given to district forums?
4. Should I approach High Court to give directions to state commissoin to expedite the appeal. If yes. Under what sections of Law should I approach High Court?
