Isaac Gabriel (Advocate)     27 March 2024 can file a claim with consumer commission if it fall within the jurisdiction of consumers commission.

T. Kalaiselvan, Advocate (Advocate)     27 March 2024

The cause of action took place in the year 2017 or before,  a complaint before consumer commission can be filed within two years from the date of cause of action .

Sir Kalaiselven the matter is still live before courts and I m told that claim can be made against society before Consumer Commission. Please suggest.

T. Kalaiselvan, Advocate (Advocate)     29 March 2024

The case before the consumer commission has not been made so far, the cause of action took place in the year 2017 hence the consumer court may not entertain the complaint.

Also as you have approached the civil court and the case is going on, you may not be allowed to claim the similar reliefs in two court simultaneously
