The Supreme Court has directed the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission to expeditiously pronounce judgment in a case which it had ‘reserved for judgment’ on 24 October 2019.

He submitted that he has filed an application on 23 June 2020 for pronouncement of the judgment since the Member who heard the EA is due to retire on 31 August 2020.
