I like suggestion given by Kumar Shashtri. It should be adopted. more  
I might be kicked out of Local Circles for voicing the real issues. Hope other consumers continue to be open and honest with their feedback more  
‪So many people provided so much feedback to improve Consumer Courts. What is the outcome? Nothing. This department is a waste of space as the guys there are not able to address current issues like fraud Telangana Judge and how can we hope that they will improve the whole Consumer Justice system. Doesn't fill any one with even an iota of confidence ‬ more  
Consumer courts are taking much time to solve cases. The oppressed parties have to endure the adjournments given to the opposite party often on no reasonable logic by them. It has become a way to harass the party who has made the complaint in this manner as they have to come from far off places wasting time and money for the same. The consumer forums should not follow a judiciary type of admissions while accepting complaints. It is seen that the administrative staff often insist that a particular format be followed.This is a cumbersome affair and filing of complaints should be made more easy.It is also noticed that the various stages involved are not in sync with the common man's grasp and understanding which actually has a leaning towards usual standards adopted in civic cases,which should be done away with, as the common man is forced to appoint a advocate where in actual terms he does not need one,it the procedure is simplified. Even the Judges give more prominence to advocates and naturally so because of legal back ground involved. It should be more consumer friendly,which is not the case at present. more
