I had made a complaint against a builder in District Consumer Forum Chennai. After taking due care on the maintainability of the complaint the Forum issued notice to opposite party. On conclusion of hearings my complaint was dismissed on merits of the case. I had appealed to the State Forum against the order. To my surprise and shock the State Forum went on decide the maintainability of the complaint before it and without giving notice to the respondents decided to dismiss my appeal on maintainability and merits of the case. While the lower court had not dismissed the case on maintainability and challenge before the State forum is on the dismissal on merits of the case was the State Forum with in its powers to over rule that the lower court should not have taken the case on file?. Also there was no appeal by respondent to the State Forum to look into admissibility of the case. Can the dismissal by state Forum be challenged by me by way of a Writ of Certiorari Petition in High Court ?
