Orders and Judgments Duration July 08-22, 2019

The Supreme Court (SC) has reiterated that, in matter of condonation of delay, the Consumer Commission should take liberal view. The bench set aside an order of National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission which had refused to condone a delay of 207 days in filing the revision Petition before it. Referring to an old Supreme Court judgment in Ramlal v. Rewa Coalfields Ltd., the Consumer Commission had held that the Petitioner had not properly explained the delay and thus no case is made out to condone the delay.
