SLP under Article 136 not maintainable against NCDRC order passed on appeal or revision plea: Supreme Court

The Court observed that when a party has an alternative remedy to go before a High Court, the Supreme Court should not entertain a special leave petition and “thereby short-circuit the legal procedure prescribed.”

The Supreme Court Wednesday ruled that National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) orders cannot be directly challenged before the top court by way of a special leave petition (SLP) under Article 136 of the Constitution unless the order was passed in exercise of the NCDRC’s original jurisdiction.
