Advocate losing case on merits not deficiency of service to file consumer case: Supreme Court

Only in a case where it is found that there was any deficiency in service due to negligence of the advocate, there may be some case, the Court said.

An advocate losing a case after arguing it on merits and due to no negligence on his part cannot be construed as ‘deficiency in service’ for which a consumer complaint can lie, the Supreme Court has held (Nandlal Lohariya v. Jagdish Chand Purohit and others).
