BBA LLB Batch of 2015-2020

2. That the content of Para no.2 so as related to the copy of retail invoice of the subject disputed product is a

complaint is wholly groundless and vexatious and liable to be dismissed.

19
Internship Report by Shagun Bhadana,
BBA LLB Batch of 2015-2020

3. That O.P no.2 is not liable to compensate for the handset as O.P no.2 was always helpful and considerate.
Neither the O.P no. 2 is responsible to replace any such product manufactured by Redmi as O.P no.2 is only
concerned with the service of the defects in handsets.

rent for the said property owned by my client. Moreover, to downright infringement of conduct there has
been no payment in the last one year by you the noticees against discharge of your accountability and
liability towards my client.

7. That my client being a kind and innocent person has time and again approached you the noticees and
gave the information qua the said intentional negligence on the part of you the notices and again
requested you to clear the outstanding amount which you the noticees are legally entitled towards to pay
and otherwise my client would not be left with any other option but to take appropriate and necessary
legal action against you the noticees.

8. That on this you the notice again apologized to my client and requested not to initiate any legal
proceedings and promised to clear the said dues towards my client and my client being kind hearted gave
one more chance regarding the clearance of the outstanding dues of you the noticees.

9. That you the noticees have made baseless excuses and pretexts about the tenant vacating the said
property/office space even when the lock-in period has still not exhausted. Furthermore, on intimations
regarding the same and qua the recovery done thereafter you the noticees have kept silent on the said
pretext till date only to give more hollow assurances.

10. That even after the countless assurances you the noticees have failed to clear out any dues you owe to my
client and you being dishonest kept avoiding the several attempts made by my client for a personal
meeting and/or telephonic conversations which speaks volumes in regard to your dishonest and
fraudulent intention towards discharge of your liability to my Client.

11. That from the above factual matrix it has now become absolutely clear that you the noticees had
intentionally and dishonestly deliberated the above said failure to clear out the amount due by you the
noticees and kept on delaying the matter on one bogus pretext or the other even after giving repeated
assurances to the representatives of my client that you the Noticee will soon repay the said amou

12. nt. My client believing and acting on the assurances of you the noticee continued to be patient.

13. That you have made yourself liable for prosecution under Section(s) 406, 420, 120 B, 467, 468, 471 and 34
of the Indian Penal Code (as amended up to date) under which also you are liable for prosecution and

BBA LLB Batch of 2015-2020

IV. That the Complainant has not served any notice to O.P no.2. Therefore, the present Complaint is a
gross abuse to process of law and deserves to be dismissed with exemplary cost.

V. That at the threshold, the Opposite Party no.2 humbly states and submits that the present complaint is
wholly misconceived, prima facie proves the malafide intentions and bad conduct of the Complainant
and thus unsustainable in law as well as on facts. The Complainant never approached the O.P no.2 on
02.11.2016 and framed fictitious story and no such jobsheet was issued by O.P no.2 on 02.11.2016.
Hence, the present complaint is a gross abuse of the process of this Honble Forum as the Complainant
is guilty of suppressing, concocting and circumventing material facts and hence the present consumer
complaint of the Complainant is liable to be dismissed as such.

VI. That the present complaint filed by the Complainant is bereft of any merit, and the same deserves to
be dismissed in limine.

VII. That the Respondent No. 2 is not concerned with the replacement of the product or refund of money

VIII. That the present complaint filed by the Complainant is misconceived, prima facie proves the malafide

as such.

with intention to gain illegal money.

PARA WISE REPLY TO THE COMPLAINT:

1. That contents of para 1 are matter of fact/ record and the Complainant had purchased the said handset
from O.P No.1 and therefore O.P no.2 is not answerable to the same. Hence need no comments.

2. That contents of para 3 is a matter of record. Hence need no comments.

25
Internship Report by Shagun Bhadana,
BBA LLB Batch of 2015-2020

3. That contents of para 4 & 5 are wrong and vehemently denied entirely. It is submitted that the
complainant has never reported such problem with the O.P. no. 2 and the contents under reply are not
admitted as the Complainant never approached O.P no.2 on 02.11.2016 with any such fault/ defect in
the handset in question and the same is just a concocted and fictitious story.

4. That the averments made in para 6 of the complaint are wrong and denied except the matter of
fact/record as the O.P no.2 has provided its best service to the complainant and never been casual in its
services. It is submitted that the complainant visited the O.P. no. 2 for the first time on 10.11.2016
raising some issues qua touch pad saying that the same was not working properly. On the said
complaint, the O.P. no. 2 inspected the said handset properly within reasonable time and the reported
problem/ fault in the said handset and accordingly the same was conveyed to the Complainant.

5. That the contents of para 7 of the complaint are wrong and vehemently denied and not admitted. The
O.P. no. 2 has never demanded Rs. 4800/- from the Complainant rather after the proper inspection of
the handset in question as per the request of complainant, the O.P. no.2 intimated the complainant that
the reported problem does not covered under the warranty terms and the same is chargeable with sum
Rs. 3773/- which is clearly mentioned in the inspection sheet dated 10.11.2016 (copy given to the
complainant there and then) and was in the knowledge of the Complainant. The contention in the
corresponding para in respect of the demand of Rs.4800/- for repair of the said handset is bogus and a
fictitious story made by the Complainant to gain illegal money through this litigation.

6. That the content of para 8 is wrong and denied as the fault/ problem in the said handset was prevailing
at the time when the Complainant approached O.P no.2. It is pertinent to mention here that in order to
inspect the said handset properly, O.P no.2 has to open the handset and found the problem as TP not
working.

7. That the contents of para 9 is strictly denied and not admitted as O.P no.2 never demanded a sum of Rs.
4800/- from the Complainant and the amount so chargeable for the repair of the said handset is Rs.
3773/- which was mentioned in the inspection sheet and the same was within the knowledge of the
Complainant.

8. That the each and every averment of para 10 is wrong and denied. The O.P no.2 tried its best to satisfy
the Complainant but the Complainant never responded.

26
Internship Report by Shagun Bhadana,
BBA LLB Batch of 2015-2020

9. That the contents of Para 11 are wrong and denied as O.P no.2 has never been served with any legal
notice as alleged by the complainant under the corresponding para of his complaint..

10. In reply to contents of para 12 it is submitted that the complainant is not entitled to get any relief from
the O.P no.2 as OP no.2 has always ensured the complainants satisfaction. Moreover the O.P no.2 is
not negligent on its part as the Complainant was not ready to pay the amount of Rs. 3773/- against the
repair of the said handset. It is further submitted here that O.P no. 2 is not responsible for the
replacement of the said handset as O.P no.2 is not the manufacturer of the product. In view of the same
O.P no.2 is not liable to compensate and hence the complainant only intends to gain money through
this litigation.

11. Contents of para 13 are wrong, denied and baseless as O.P no.2 always ensures to satisfy the
Complainant and the said handset was inspected then and there only. The complainant was aware of
the defect in the said handset and it was in the knowledge of the Complainant that the problem
reported does not fall under the warranty terms and is chargeable. It is pertinent to mention here that
the contention made in the corresponding para is false as Complainant himself seeks time as he wanted
to confirm with his parents whether he wants to get the handset repaired or not.

12. That the contents of para 14 are matter of record and hence needs no reply.

13. The contents of the prayer clause is specifically denied as the Complainant has demanded refund of

cost of the handset in question or the replacement of the handset for which O.P no.2 is not liable or

responsible. The O.P no.2 is not concerned with any replacement or refund of money as O.P no.2 is only

a service centre and not the manufacturer of the handset. It is further submitted that the said handset

is lying with the service centre of O.P no.2 as the Complainant never responded as to if he wants the

handset to get it repaired or not. Moreover the OP no. 2 has quoted a legally chargeable amount as the

defect reported do not fall under the warranty terms of XIAOMI. It is further submitted that the

Complainant has demanded compensation of sum of Rs. 30,000/- to which the O.P. no.2 is not liable to

pay. It only demonstrates that the intention of the Complainant is to extract money through this

unjustified litigation. Therefore in view of the abovementioned paras the present complaint against the

O.P. no. 2 deserves to be dismissed with heavy cost.

ADDITIONAL PLEAS:

27
Internship Report by Shagun Bhadana,
BBA LLB Batch of 2015-2020

i. That the O.P no.2 got nothing related to the expert report with regard to alleged product.

ii. That there is no service of any notice or complaint served upon the answering O.P No.2. Hence
the complaint is wholly groundless and vexatious and liable to be dismissed.

iii. That O.P no.2 has provided its best service to the Complainant and the after due process and
testing of the handset, the Complainant was made clear about the defects in the said handset
and was asked to revert back as soon as possible but the Complainant never responded.

iv. That O.P no.2 is not liable to compensate for the handset as O.P no.2 was always helpful and
considerate. Neither the O.P no. 2 is responsible to replace any such product manufactured as
O.P no.2 is only concerned with the service of the handsets.

v. That the allegations of defect, negligence and deficiency in service are wholly groundless, false
and untenable in law besides being extraneous and irrelevant as O.P no.2 is not liable to
compensate in any case which shows that the present complaint is flagrant abuse of process of
law to harass O.P No.2 and complainant only wants to gain money through this litigation.

Upon the prior instructions on behalf of my client Mr. Rajesh Ranga, S/o Sh. Inder Singh Ranga,

TOTAL Rs. 36,44,504/-

6. That all the payments including but not limited to the installments have been made by my client as
specified in GENERAL TERMS AND AGREEMENT.

7. That my client being an innocent person paid you a total amount of Rs. 37,41,794/- (including service
tax) from her husbands hard earned money as and when demanded by you and you by raising false
demands kept on asking money from the allottees like my client without even making any
development both external as well as internal as promised by you.

8. That as per the assurances/commitments given at your end at the time of application/booking, you
were under legal obligation to offer the possession of the flat within 36 months from the date of
booking (i.e. from 04.05.2011) but you failed to fulfill your obligation and commitments.

9. That due to your failure my client suffered heavy monetary losses as she booked the present flat to
fulfill the needs of her son and due to your said failure her son had to reside on rent by paying huge
rent. But when it comes to your customers, you impose heavy penalty on your customers on failure of
their fulfillment of obligations and not vice-versa.

10. It is pertinent to mention here that on a small delay of few days on my clients part you have charged
a huge penalty @ 18% interest p.a. on the due amount of a single installment which was not even
intentional at all and accordingly my client paid a sum of Rs. 65,000/- towards the said penalty and
you did not pay any heed on my clients request qua waiving of the penalty amount. But on the other

30
Internship Report by Shagun Bhadana,
BBA LLB Batch of 2015-2020

hand you the noticees made a huge delay of about 30 months in offering possession to my client and
did not pay even a single penny on the default made by you.

11. That thereafter my client tried to contact you the noticee to get update of the flat/project but every
time the representative of you the noticee avoided the telephonic calls and physical meetings of my
client on one or other pretext.

12. That you the noticee kept my client in dark and accepted all the payment made by my client and you
failed to deliver the possession of the flat on time i.e. within 36 months from the date of booking of
the flat in question as promised by you the noticees.

13. That my client without any delay, made the total payment in consideration of the flat/apartment in
question well within time as and when demanded. On 08.08.2016 your representative gave in
writing that the Company (i.e. you the noticee) has received full & final payment towards the said flat
in your project and a possession letter bearing no. PT/T16-1003 dated 08.08.2016 was also issued to
my client in respect of the said flat.

14. That my client after receiving the letter for possession visited the flat in question and was astonished
to see the flaws and imperfections in the flat. The interior of the said flat was full of constructional
defects such as paint spots on wooden flooring, gap in the wooden flooring of the master bedroom,
mismatching of tiles in the kitchen and balcony, improper alignment of door frames and shower etc.
My client was shocked to inspect the said flat properly as the walls of rooms and balcony were
uneven and had spots of mold. The quality of material used is not standardized and off poor quality.
You the noticees failed to meet the expectations of my client as promised by you for which she has
paid you her husbands hard earned money.

15. That you the noticees have used inferior quality of building material which is again contrary to your
promises and specifications specified in Schedule IV of the agreement. Use of low quality material
such as cements, steel and other building material and flaws in the design of the said constructed flat
may cause damage to person or property resulting in financial and physical harm to the allottee. This
has made my client realize that the money she paid to buy the said flat in your project was a sheer
waste and all the payments she made was for a flat which is full of constructional defects and flaws.

16. That on 21.09.2016 your representatives issued a Car Parking Letter in respect of confirmation of
reserved car parking slot bearing no. T16/LB/C-63 in Lower Basement but till date the said slot in
the lower basement is not yet ready to be used to park the cars. In this connection my client and her
representatives visited your office several times but every visit seems to have gone in vain. The

31
Internship Report by Shagun Bhadana,
BBA LLB Batch of 2015-2020

concerned persons/executives at the office of you the noticees have made lame excuses and have
neither given any concrete deadline nor information about the same.

17. That my client is being subjected to unnecessary delay and mental agony, my client had waited for
about 30 months to get the possession of the said flat, and after getting the possession of the said flat
my client again approached you the noticees and objected to obtain the possession of the said flat but
the representatives of the noticees threatened that if my client will not take the possession
then the amount paid by my client will be forfeited and nothing will be refunded. Having
no other option my client accepted the possession and executed the registry of the said
flat and have to move in the said flat which is full of flaws and constructional defects. Moreover,
after few days of residing in the flat my client faced another constructional defect as there were
cracks in the wooden door frame as well.

18. Despite making full payment with excess and illegal interest imposed by you the noticee as
mentioned above, you have failed to be on your own words/promises. Such practices are highly
unfair and restrictive trade practices and reflects you unprofessional behavior. You have charged
excess interest from my client on account of a very small delayed payment but never paid any heed of
on account of delay of 30 months on your part in offering the possession of the said flat. This
approach of yours shows complete lack of professionalism and autocratic functioning of your
company.

19. That you the noticees are thus liable to pay alongwith an interest amount of Rs. 13,02,724.08 @ 18%
p.a. towards the delay made by you the noticees in giving the possession of the said flat and a sum of
Rs. 5,00,000/- towards harassment and mental agony.

You are thereby requested to remit the said amount to my client at the earliest but not later than 15 days from
date of receipt of this notice, failing which I have clear instructions from my client to initiate appropriate civil
and criminal proceedings against you, for misrepresentation, fraud, cheating and misappropriation of amount
deposited by my client, and you would be solely responsible for all the consequences emanating therefrom.

You are also liable to pay Rs 25000/- towards charges for the present notice.

Copy retained.
