Special Leave Petition Sample

May it please the Hon'ble Chief Justice of India and His Lordship's Companion Judges of the Supreme Court. The petitioner-appellant-(company) MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH:

 1. That the petitioner is a law abiding citizen of India who is an entrepreneur by profession and a human rights activist by temperament, and is challenging by way of this Special Leave Petition the judgment an order of The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission ( henceforth referred to as NCDRC in this petition) towards his review petition in case no. CC/****/201* dated 13.06.2018 (received by the petitioner on 04.06.2019 vide registered post no. RD 0917977**IN) in proceeding under Section 21 (a) (i) of The Consumer Protection Act, 1986 (CPA)

2. That the questions of law involved in this matter are as follows:
 (a) Whether the Hon’ble NCDRC has fallen into error in taking the view that a proper assessment was already furnished to it despite that can NCDRC orders declare that there was no assessment submitted for the claim?

(b) Whether in review petition pertaining to the same complaint a copy of the receipt of the assessment from registry was also filed later with the review petition with the NCDRC, so could there really be no grounds and to admit the complaint when the dismissal of the complaint was solely on the ground that there was no assessment furnished to Hon’ble NCDRC?

(c) As due claim assessment was already submitted before the commission through its registry before the final judgment was pronounced, and for this a review petition was filed with the Hon’ble NCDRC, would it really not be an “error on the face of record” for which such review petitions with NCDRC are meant?

3. That the petitioner had a domestic electricity connection at his ancestral house where he used to live and the opposite party disconnected because of dues of Rs. ******/- without notice while it was not serving bills for several months despite the complainants visiting at the billing office who were only making excuses, and no payments are accepted without bills.

 4. That the opposite party did not even inform about disconnection and take signatures on receipt and the improper receipt was found lying at the property.

5. There was no communication ever made by the opposite party on its own regarding disconnection and it was also unwilling to correct its mistake and had always been adamant on recovering re-connection charges despite its own fault.

6. That the opposite party had to compromise with the re-connection charges at a stage when his father returned after admission in hospital.

7. Despite such deficiency in services there was no reason that the same deficiency could not be repeated again and this would call for further atrocities despite making any compromises at any earlier stage. The proof to it is police complaint by the complainant to which police replied that it called on phone and the concerned ____L staff told them that they can disconnect electricity even without notice automatically, which is violation of section 56 (1) of the Indian Electricity Act 2003 which mandates not less than 15 clear days notice prior disconnection.

8. That due to such disconnection the complainant suffered huge pecuniary losses in his occupational career as he was busy preparing for his X MSME business firms in the Information Technology and allied sectors at his residence which were duly registered with Income Tax PAN for each of them.

9. That due to such career losses and mental agony in the same proportion the petitioner claimed an amount of 502 crores through a complaint with NCDRC and when asked on the first hearing submitted complete assessment on 28 May 2018 with the commission as the 2 member bench asked.

10. In the second hearing the 2 member asked for more explanation so the complainant sought one more chance for the same and the bench ordered accordingly but as the order only said that complainant wants one more chance and rescheduled the hearing the registry did not accept further explanation and asked to submit it directly before the bench.

11. That as the 2 member bench went for summer vacations a single member bench heard the case and did not accept further explanation and issued an order claiming that no assessment was submitted which is not the fact.

12. A review petition was filed with the same single member along with the receipt of the assessment submission with the NCDRC registry, still the Hon’ble NCDRC member mentioned in their extremely concise order that no grounds to review or recall the order were found by them.

13. The single member bench in its own order had mentioned that the petitioner has the right to claim any amount but it was only concerned with assessment and summarily ignored it despite the complainant had submitted a proper detailed assessment document.

14. The single member found the claimed amount mind boggling which is obvious but with it due assessment and grounds it is no how mind boggling as the assessment shows the claim despite diminishing it for all possible reasons to be amounting to Rs. 31, 500 crores, while the complainant sought only 500 crores for it considering the capacity of opposite party to pay and to impose lesser burden on it.

15. That though the orders of the single member bench allow the petitioner to make smaller claim at any other forum but that also needs assessment and due assessment for the claimed amount was already furnished with NCDRC.

16. That it is not feasible for such aspiring entrepreneur complainant to claim smaller amount as then the same time if utilized by him would better enable him recovering from the damages caused by the opposite party in his life.

17. The impugned NCDRC orders have only curtailed the consumer rights ab initio, and are regressive and degenerative in approach with no legal, moral or legitimate standing.


    18. That the impugned orders of NCDRC are based on untrue  
     assumption that no assessment of claim was submitted while it was duly
     submitted to which the commission registry must have record, and to
     which copy of receipt from the registry was also submitted by the
     petitioner with the review petition.

19. That the petitioner has not filed any appeal or other proceeding  relating to this matter in this Hon'ble Court or any other Court.

                           RELIEF SOUGHT under SLP

    20. The petitioner accordingly prays that this Hon'ble Court be pleased to     
    grant Special Leave to the complaint be heard by Hon’ble NCDRC and
    proceedings take place accordingly.

    21. Any other relief that the Hon’ble court deems fit.

What is Special Leave Petition (SLP)?

In India Special Leave Petitions (S.L.P.) holds a prime place in the Indian Judiciary. Its provision is as a residual power in the hands of the Supreme Court of India (SCI).

Indian Constitution under Article 136 vests the Supreme Court of India, the apex court of the country, with a special power to allow or grant special leave, to appeal against any judgment or order or decree in any matter or cause, that was passed or made by any Court/tribunal within the territory of India. 

This is to be used in case any substantial constitutional question of law is involved, or gross injustice has been done.

It is discretionary power that vests in the Supreme Court of India and the court may in its discretion refuse to grant leave to appeal.

The aggrieved party cannot claim special leave to appeal under Article 136 as a right, but it is merely a privilege that vests in the Supreme Court of India to grant leave to appeal or otherwise.
