Can a tenant be termed a consumer and approach the Consumer Forum for the redressal of his grievances against the Landlord?
The rental premises is in shambles and the Landlord neither arranges for necessary repairs nor permits the tenant to carry out the repairs, to make the rented premises tenantable, at his own expenses. The BMC authorities have given their no-objection for the repairs. The repairs do not require any additions or alterations in the premises.
Please inform me the legal position.
Thanks in advance,
