When the car didn’t reach the destination even after a month of booking, a search operation was carried out. The car was found in Navsari city of Gujarat parked on road side in a very bad state.
As per Dr. Shrivastava, it was a new car and hadn’t been used often but it was found in a condemned state. Dr. Amitabh Shrivastava filed a case against Secunderabad, Vijaywada and Udaipur branches of DRS Agarwal packers and movers in the District Consumer Forum. The forum issued orders to DRS Agarwal Packers to compensate the cost of car, registration and transportation expense of 6 lakh 52 thousand and 50 thousand for mental harassment and distress caused to Dr. Shrivastava. Agarwal packers and movers made an appeal against this order in State Consumer Commission which was declined by the Commission rendering the decision of forum as final.
