Consumer forum raps women for proof tampering
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.
