Bombay HC Seeks Government's Response on PIL for Consumer Disputes Redressal in Palghar

The Bombay High Court on Wednesday sought the Maharashtra government's response to a public interest litigation (PIL) petition advocating for the establishment of a district consumer dispute redressal commission in the Palghar district.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Devendra Kumar Upadhyaya and Justice Arif Doctor issued notice in the matter and scheduled the case for the next hearing in June.

The Court noted that there seemed to be no justification for the delay in establishing a district consumer forum in Palghar, especially considering that it has been a decade since the district was formed.

The petitioner highlighted before the Court that Palghar district was established on August 1, 2014. They also noted that a room in a collectorate office had previously been designated for the establishment of a consumer commission. However, the State government has not yet issued any communication to officially notify this space as a consumer redressal forum, the petitioner pointed out.

Therefore, the petitioner has now sought the intervention of the High Court in the matter. The case is scheduled to be heard next June 19.
