Are Consumer Courts Covered Under The Rti Act
In my consumer complaint against M/s Airtel the Hob'ble Distt. Consumer Court gave its written judgement on 27 May 08. I was never intimated what was the decision of the court, which was not made known to me as neither was the judgement pronounced before me when I was present there nor is a copy of the same being provided to me. This despite my repeated personal visits to the Office of the Distt Consumer Forum, Faridabad.
Due to this delay I am loosing the precious time which I have for making an appeal in the State Consumer Commission. As an appeal can be made within a time limit of 30 days from the date of judgement.
Plese guide, whether Consumer Courts are also covered under the <ACRONYM title="Right to Information">RTI</ACRONYM> Act, or is there any way in which <ACRONYM title="Right to Information">RTI</ACRONYM> Act can be used for getting this judgement or names of people who are deliberately delaying the delivery of the judgement.<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
Re: Are Consumer Courts Covered Under The Rti Act
Yes, consumer courts are definitely covered under RTI.
You can directly ask for the certified copy of the judgement.
