The question whether a complainant is a consumer of the bank has to be determined first before granting any relief and the facts of the case where the second complainant merely handed over documents of title to the bank with a view to stand as surety for the 1st complainant, and has not availed / hired any service of the bank, he was held not to be a consumer of the bank. The order of the State Commission directing the bank to pay compensation for retaining the documents was set aside and the order of the District Forum dismissing the complaint was restored.
