Con­sumer fo­rum raps women for proof tam­per­ing

The Political and Business Daily - - METRO/NCR -

A con­sumer fo­rum here has rapped two women for fil­ing a com­plaint on "friv­o­lous grounds" against a beauty par­lour by "tam­per­ing" with its re­ceipts for avail­ing ben­e­fits of life time ser­vices.

The West Delhi District Con­sumer Dis­putes Re­dres­sal Fo­rum, while dis­miss­ing the com­plaint against the par­lour in Paschim Vi­har here, also im­posed a cost of Rs 1,000 on Delhi res­i­dents Poonam Goyal and Priya Kansal.

The fo­rum said the words "life time" writ­ten on the re­ceipts of the sa­lon, which was sub­mit­ted as an ev­i­dence by the women, were in dif­fer­ent hand­writ­ing which showed they were tam­pered.

"... a care­ful pe­rusal of the hand­writ­ing of these two words 'life time' re­veals that these two words are writ­ten in dif­fer­ent hand­writ­ing by dif­fer­ent per­sons. With naked eye this dif­fer­ence is vis­i­ble and we do not find any rea­son to dis­be­lieve the tes­ti­mony of the Op­po­site Party that re­ceipts were tam­pered with and the words 'life time' were added sub­se­quently," the fo­rum presided by Bimla Makin said. While hold­ing that the com­plainants tried to take un­due ad­van­tage of the sys­tem, tam­pered with the re­ceipts and filed the com­plaint on friv­o­lous grounds, the fo­rum said whoso­ever tries to do.
