SC Asks 2 Members of NCDRC To Explain Why They Issued Warrants Contrary to Its Order
Abhimanyu Hazarika (Bar  and  Bench) 17 April 2024
The Supreme Court (SC) has asked Subhash Chandra and Dr Sadhna Shanker, two members of the national consumer disputes redressal commission (NCDRC), to explain why they issued non-bailable warrants against the directors of Ireo Grace Realtech Pvt Ltd, despite an interim order by the top court to not take any coercive action in the matter. 
 
A bench of justice Hima Kohli and justice Ahsanuddin Amanullah issued a show-cause notice (SCN) in the matter to Mr Chandra, the presiding member and Dr Shanker, a member of the concerned NCDRC bench.
 
"It is deemed appropriate to issue notice to the presiding member and the member of the NCDRC, calling upon them to explain how the order was passed on 2 April 2024. Reply to the notice to show cause shall be filed within one week. A copy of this order shall be dispatched to the NCDRC forthwith," the SC order stated. 
 
The matter will be heard next by the Supreme Court on 24th April.
 
The case before NCDRC concerned complaints by home-buyers who were aggrieved by the failure or delay in handing over possession of flats in Gurugram's 'The Corridor' housing project. 
 
Execution proceedings were initiated by various home-buyers before the NCDRC against the project developer, Ireo Grace, after the homebuyers secured orders awarding them compensation by the national consumer forum.
 
The project developer then approached the SC, challenging such an award of compensation by way of civil appeals.
 
On 1 March 2024, the apex court gave interim protection to Ireo Grace while issuing notice on the civil appeals filed by the developer. By this interim order, the Court restrained NCDRC from taking any coercive steps against Ireo Grace.
 
However, in one of the several execution proceedings initiated by home-buyers, a two-member bench of NCDRC passed an order on 2 April 2024, issuing non-bailable warrants against the directors of Ireo Grace after the company failed to file certain compliance affidavits.
