2. As stated by the complainant Jai Narain in his consumer complaint no. 400/2002, he received a loan of ₹67,000/- from the Primary Land Development Bank (PLDB), Thanesar, Kurukshetra, Haryana under the ‘Underground Pipeline Scheme’. The said Bank issued a bank draft of ₹44,880/- in favour of the petitioner/opposite party (OP) No. 1 Atul Pipe Corporation through OP-5, the Assistant Soil Conservation Officer, Kurukshetra, through whom, 25% subsidy amount was to be awarded to the complainant. The said draft was paid to the petitioner/OP-1 for the purchase of 120 RCC pipes, 12″ in diameter with rubber rings. It is alleged that the petitioner/OP-1 supplied only 108 pipes against the order of 120 pipes. Four of the pipes supplied were broken, meaning thereby that there was shortfall of 16 pipes in the supply made by the petitioner. Moreover, the pipes were made of substandard material. The supply of the pipes was made @187/- per mtr., whereas such pipes were available in the open market at ₹100/- per mtr. and in this manner, excess amount was charged by the petitioner in the transaction. Alleging that he had suffered loss of ₹20,000/- for substandard supply of pipes and further ₹16,750/- as loss of subsidy and ₹2 lakh as loss of crops and ₹2,992/- for less supply of pipes, the complainant filed the consumer complaint, seeking directions to the OPs to pay a sum of ₹2,40,622/- to him and also to pay compensation of ₹1 lakh for deficiency in service.
