Complainants/Petitioners have filed this Revision Petition against the order and judgment dated 24.11.11 passed by the State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission, Haryana (in short, ''the State Commission'') in appeal no. 3296/07 whereby the State Commission reversing the order passed by the District Forum has allowed the appeal filed by the Respondent herein and has dismissed the complaint filed by the Petitioners.
