Pune: Consumer Forum Orders Packers And Movers To Pay Rs 16,000 Compensation For Missing Luggage
Pune, January 20, 2021: A software developer who moved to Chhattisgarh for work faces the mismanagement of Packers and Movers. Only seven of the nine boxes he’d received. In addition, the boxes should be delivered in six days, but in a month.
The engineer, who filed a complaint with the Additional District Consumer Grievances Redressal Commission about the misconduct of the Packers and Movers Company, was exonerated. The commission has ordered the company to pay Rs 16,000 for the baggage in the missing box and Rs 2,000 for the litigation costs. The chairman of the commission, Jayant Deshmukh, members Shubhangi Deshmukh and Anil Javalekar gave the verdict.
Mopendra Kumar, a resident of Mundhwa, had complained to the consumer forum against Sombir Singh, packer and moving company from Chikhali. The complainant had agreed to pay 8,000 rupees for the delivery of goods in Dhamtari in Chhattisgarh. The company packed the complainant’s material in nine different boxes and shipped it from Pune on August 17, 2019. The material would reach Dhamtari in 4 to 6 days, he was told. But it came a month later and two boxes were missing.
The complainant called the company to get the missing box. But it didn’t get the correct answer. So Mopedra Kumar turned to the consumer forum for the appropriate box or compensation for it.
Mopendra Kumar was told that his boxes had gone to a customer in Nagpur. When he contacted the customer in Nagpur, he said the boxes had not arrived there. He also told the complainant that his things were also missing.
