I have filed a complaint in a RERA tribunal against a builder to which the tribunal sought a reply from the builder (defendant). After putting off and seeking more time for 3 consecutive hearings, the builder's lawyer finally filed their reply which the tribunal will examine on the upcoming date. Their reply is trivial eyewash and a mere waste of the tribunal's time.
I would like to seek the advice of the legal experts here as to whether I should file a counter-reply immediately, before the upcoming hearing? Or should i wait for the tribunal to examine the builder's argument, and then file my counter-reply only when directed by the tribunal to do so?
I have not sought the services of a lawyer as I can not afford one. I would be grateful for any help as I am unaware of the protocols of the court.
