Mr. Vinod Gandhi deposited Rs. 5 lakhs as booking amount to M/S Puri constructions, New delhi , for an apartment in the 9th floor along with a letter which stated. “The allotment of the said unit (C-2/902 on the 9th floor) is subject to your agreeing to the terms and conditions, enclosed as schedule with the letter”.

The buyer did not sign the letter and sought a refund. However the developer reduced 50,000/- as earnest money and refunded only 4,50,000/-

This was fought by the consumer since lower courts did not pass an order in his favour.

Since the buyer, did not sign the allotment letter, the commission felt that the contract is not valid and ordered refund of 50,000 to the buyer with 9% interest (vinod Gandhi vs puri constructions New Delhi) Revision petition 4053 of 2014.
