Consumer case: Jurisdiction
I have been cheated by an online utility bill payment company, which has its registered office at Mumbai. I am from Delhi. Which consumer forum can I file a case with? Can I file the case at Delhi?
A complaint can be instituted in a consumer forum within the local limits of whiche either the opposite party resides or carries on business or has a branch office or personally works for gain, or if there are more than one opposite party, then any one of the opposite parties resides, or carries on business or has a branch office, or personally works for gain, or where the cause of action arose.
Thus according to the facts you have provided to us, you will have to file it in Mumbai, unless the cause of action arose in Delhi.
