Amendment proposal to Consumer Protection Act, 1986

Quite happy news that after 2002 a proposal for amendment of the consumer protection act 1986 is mooted recently, although there seems some things are still not attended for example :-in case when president and only one member doing the hearing and while passing order differ with each other on different points and then the order has to be referred to the third member for his opinion it is kept same though a lot of difficulty is seen working with this section of the law which prescribes that the differing order is to be referred to the third member for opinion and hearing and here inclusion of hearing gives rise to hearing being taken separately once again and noticing all the parties and so on which complicates the procedure ad also delays the matter further.There also lacking any provision in case this third member do not agree with the other two member...so finer points are till needed to be rectified and I think this has happened because feed back from those who work at the grassroot level are not heard , or taken care off but most of the technical difficulties are attended.
