legal notice in email ?


Hello,

I have a disputed amount to be paid to a mobile company (as per the company), after I had disconnected their service ( they kept the service on even after I formally requested them to terminate it and I was asked to pay for 4 months basic charges although I had moved out of state and before that had requested to terminate the service).They had acknowledge my request to terminate and I have that email but they still kept the number on. I feel it is unfair as it is the companys mistake they didnt terminate it in 7 days as per the TRAI guidelines so I tried to convince the company of their mistake but they insisted I pay this.I had no choice but to let it go legally since I feel its unjust. I was using this connection in Vishakapatnam in 2008.I moved out of Vishakapatnam and later moved to Qatar and has been here since.They have corresponded to me in email and I had convinced them and even escalated to their district,state and national level,although I never got a reply from them.

Last week I got a email from them asking me to appear before court given below but no address was given as to which court or where.This email came from the mobile company and not from a legal office or court.I am not sure if this email was just send out to pressure me to pay and in fact is not a legal notice.

I want to know if this email notice (despite inconsistencies like no address was mentioned) is legally binding and should I reply to it ?

And if I have to appear, can I ask a representative advocate to attend the court since I am working in Qatar now.

Pls let me know what are my options and what should be done.  now.

Thanks

Alex

There are some clever brains behind d mobile mobile company.....

u need not present before any court without a notice which is in prescribed form, official seal and send through regd. post by a competent court.

Sujith ji is right, unless and untill u recieve a notice under the stamp and seal of a court, u should not worry about the things.

 

these are merely recovery tactics of such private operators...if u are harrased again then simply move a complaint against the company before TRAI.

Thanks to all of you for the clarification.

One other thing that I want to ask is this - The last address with the mobile company was my rented apartment in Vishakapatnam.I have hence moved out from there and later to Qatar.If they would be sending a formal notice by post, would I have to check with that address proactively ? I dont keep in touch with the landlord and I dont have any one in Visakhapatnam so I am wondering if there is something I should be doing proactively ?
Thanks

there is no provision in the civil procedure code for service of summons through E mail. in case your earlier address is the rented premises , notice might have been sent to the same ,since it is the last known residential address and only after return of notice, private notice through reg. post will be ordered then publication in the news paper and in any case if at all any case is filed against you ,you will be called absent and order will be pronounced. Email service is no service . any how nothing wrong in placing actual fact informing them as to no claim in your case. k.radha krishnan advocate

 Imagine even in this age, the company is so confident that it thinks it can bully customers into giving such hilarious threats...... asking them to appear in court in email.
