Consumer Court Dismisses Rs 143 Crore Negligence Claim
New Delhi. The National Consumer Commission today dismissed the medical negligence claim to the tune of Rs 143 Crores filed by a US-based doctor who had alleged that his wife died because of negligence given at a Kolkata hospital.

The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission Bench comprising Justice M B Shah, Justice K S Gupta and Member Rajya Lakshmi, in its judgment, absolved five Kolkata-based doctors - Sukumar Mukherjee, Balram Prasad, Kaushik Nandi, Abani Roy Chaudhary, all of Advanced Medical Research Institute (AMRI) Apollo Hospital, and Vaidyanath Haldhar from charges of medical negligence.

Kunal Saha, in his complaint, had alleged that doctors at AMRI- Apollo Hospital had administered an "unscientific overdose of highly toxic steroid" to his wife Anuradha which resulted into her death.

I am having a DELL laptop, in the manual they mentioned the battery life of the laptop is nearly 2:30 hours, but my laptop delivers only 1 hour after full charging, they were not replacing it, I contact to the consumer court and now I don’t know why I received a phone call form DELL manager, they changed the battery and now its working very fine.

Sir, I have been cheated by a member of IDEA Cellular Ltd. He was fraud and had taken Rs. 745/- from my house from my sister. Please tell what to do now from my side.

Consumer court has sone the right thing by not allowing such petetions and claims, does the Indian helaht service follow the US example- where claims have increase the cost of insurance covers for the doctors and resulted in esclating healthcare costs. We should follow the system in Sweden - claims like this can be mutually settled if necessary rather than going to the courts.
