I am not a lawyer and could be grossly wrong. I am posting based on my limited experience. I highly recommend you to use your discretion or take professional legal advice before using the information.
Is there any particular format for submitting evidence affidavit at District Forum for a consumer complaint ? Please find attached format.
My COMPLAINT has paragraphs numbered as a,b,c... and the COUNTER by opposite party as 1,2,3...Should I address the COUNTER point by point in the same order ? Can I substantiate my points already made in complaint either by agreeing or disagreeing ? Is my assumption that I should not make a new point correct?
Complainant may agree or disagree with COUNTER point by point and substantiate points made earlier in the complaint. New allegations should not be raised in evidence affidavit. I am not sure, but you may make new allegations (if in COUNTER stage) through I.A. or memo stating bonafide reasons for having missed them and request the Forum to take them into cognisance. Opposite party shall be given a chance to submit additional COUNTER in that case.
What should I call my next submission - Evidence Affidavit or Rejoinder & Evidence Affidavit ?
'Evidence Affidavit by Complainant' and for more subsequent submissions, if any,...'Additional Evidence Affidavit by Complainant'
How do I submit evidence for email correspondence ? submitt soft copies in pdf format of screen shots in a pen drive along with print outs?
Printout of email correspondence showing from, to and transmission particulars would suffice.
Is it correct to number the exhibits as A1,A2, etc or should it be otherwise ?
Exhibit numbers go in the order Complainant - A1,A2,A3 etc, Opposite Party 1 - B1,B2,B3 etc.. Opposite Party 2 - C1,C2,C3 etc.
