J. Sudarsanan, Chairman, Consumer and Civil Rights Protection Council Mar 19, 2021

The District Commission, Andaman and Nicobar Islands does not accept consumer complaints in hard copies and insists on mandatory e-filing. E-filing is possible only through Advocates. Common man faces impossible in e-filing. So we are compelled not to ventilated our grievances. My questions are 1. Whether e-filing of complaint is mandatory? 2. Whether offline filing has been given a goodbye? Please clarify
