  1. Challenge in this appeal under Section 15 of the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 (hereinafter referred to as 'the Act') is to the Judgement/Final Order dated 13.05.2014 passed by the Ld. District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum, South 24 Parganas at Alipore (for short, Ld. District Forum) in Consumer Complaint No. 508/2013. By the impugned order, the Ld. District Forum allowed the consumer complaint on consent against Opposite Party Nos. 1 to 6 and on contest against opposite party Nos. 7 & 8 with the directions upon the opposite parties to execute and register the Deed of Conveyance in respect of the property on payment of Rs. 1,00,000/- by the Complainant towards balance consideration amount to OP Nos. 7 & 8.

The complainant alleged that time and again he requested the developer to complete the incomplete works and to register the Sale Deed after accepting the balance amount of Rs. 1,00,000/- but all his requests and reminders went in vain. Hence, the respondent No. 1 being intending purchaser filed the complaint with prayer for following reliefs - (1) to direct the OP Nos. 1 to 8 to execute and register the Deed of Conveyance; (2) to pay compensation of Rs. 80,000/- and (3) to pay litigation cost of Rs. 20,000/-.

  3. The developer/OP No. 7 by filing a written version disputed and denied the contention of the complainant stating that the consideration amount was enhanced from Rs. 16,00,000/- to Rs. 19,00,000/- and the said figure of amount was corrected by the complainant himself.
