Under the original un-amended Act of 1986, no requirement of payment of Court-fee or any other formal procedure of Court was contemplated. However, after the amendment of 2002, there is a nominal fee you may have to pay for filing a complaint. For example in the District Forum located in Delhi the fee structure is as follows –Up to 1 Lakh – Rs.100,1 Lakh & above but less that 5 Lakhs – Rs.200,5 Lakhs & above but less that 10 Lakhs – Rs.400,10 Lakhs & above but less that 20 Lakhs – Rs. 500
