As per the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 – any consumer can file a complaint to the District Forum, State Commission or the National Commission (depending upon the pecuniary limit) without engaging any lawyer. In your case, as the amount is below 20 Lakhs the District Forum has the jurisdiction. (a complaint can also be filed online – check here)

Before filing a complaint in the forum it is desired that a notice is given to the opposite party about the deficiency in their service or the default in the product. There is no particular format of this Notice. In short, it is informing the opposite party about your grievances, how you expect them to resolve it for you and about your intentions to file a consumer complaint if your grievance is not redressed.

This notice can be sent via email or registered AD post. It can start with why you are unsatisfied with their product or service (your grievance), what you want from them or how you wish your grievance to be resolved- this could be either asking for a replacement of the product or returning the value of the purchase or providing free service etc. and about your intentions to approach the consumer court if your problem is not resolved within a reasonable number of days (15- 30 days).
