Consumer protection act,Hire purchase
How can consumer protection act be of assistance in case of equipments that has been purchased by a company?
In the normal course of business, various defects are noted in the equipments / machinery purchased by a Company. Can complaint be filed against the seller of machinery, before the Consumer Forum for such defects. Or purchase of equipment for commercial purpose is outside the purview of the Consumer Protection Act?

Using of the equipment/machinery for commercial purposes is not an embargo under the Consumer Protection Act. The complaint by the aggrieved person/company is maintainable.
