Order reserved on plea seeking curb on ‘illegal charges’ by car dealersMarch 21st, 2012 - 7:04 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 21 (IANS) The Delhi High Court Wednesday reserved its order on a plea seeking a curb on the illegal charges, including logistic charges, loading and unloading charges, levied by car dealers on buyers.
The division bench of Acting Chief Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw reserved the order after conclusion of arguments from both the sides.
The plea filed by C. Rajaram sought a direction to 69 car dealers in the city to refund the money illegally collected from vehicle buyers in the name of logistics, stocking, loading and unloading charges.
The petition submitted: “Car dealers having registration powers, unscrupulously started levying and collecting service charges, logistic charges/loading and unloading charges, stocking charges etc from their customers or intending buyers.”
“Such illegal charges” vary between Rs.3,500 and Rs.25,000 per vehicle depending on manufacturer and the cost of the vehicle and a sum of more than Rs.550 crore has been collected by the car dealers since 1999, the petition further added.
“The Motor Licensing Officers of Transport Department, Government of NCT of Delhi, knew very well that the authorised dealers are indulging in unscrupulous activities, but the officers of the department, who are supposed to be custodian and monitoring authority, interface between the general public and the authorised dealers, deliberately ignored to take any corrective measures.”
