1. This revision petition has been filed by the petitioner against the order dated 22.07.2016 passed by the Maharashtra State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission, Circuit Bench at Aurangabad (in short, ''the State Commission'') in Appeal No. 508/2015 -- Smt. Prerna Vs. M/s. Seed Works India Pvt. Ltd. by which, appeal was dismissed.

  1. Brief facts of the case are that complainant/petitioner is a farmer having irrigated land in survey no. 38 of village Waluj (khu.).
