Can compensation be claimed from Astrologers by filing a complaint in the Consumer Forum if their predictions are proved to be false? Many a times people purchase stones & gems worth thousands of rupees from astrologers believing in their predictions that their planetary positions will be changed in their horoscopes but later on they feel cheated when they realize that the predictions are false. At such time can a client claim his money from that astrologer for non-happening of his predictions under Consumer Protection Act? If not what is the alternative remedy? I request all not to go into the issue of 'whether astrology is science or not' as it is a disputed fact till date.
