Issues regarding terminal benefits not within jurisdiction of consumer courts: NCDRC

The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum recently held that any disputes regarding withholding of terminal benefits, such as gratuity or provident fund (employer's contribution), would not fall under the jurisdiction of consumer courts.
