The Supreme Court observed that consumer complaints cannot be transferred to High Court.

The bench comprising Justices Hemant Gupta and V. Ramasubramanian dismissed the Transfer petitions filed by YES Bank seeking transfer of some consumer complaints filed in District Consumer Disputes Redressal Commissions in Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and New Delhi.

"The consumer complaints are filed under the Consumer Protection Act, therefore, such consumer complaints cannot be transferred to the High Court exercising the jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution of India. Consequently, the request for transfer of the consumer complaints is declined.", the court said.

The bank had also sought transfer of the writ petitions pending before the High Courts of Allahabad, Delhi and Madras. The court noted that the Bombay High Court is already hearing one similar petition.

"We request the said High Courts to await the Judgment of the Bombay High Court, who has fixed 10th February 2022 for the final hearing. The High Courts may adjourn the matters pending before it to await order of the Bombay High Court and then to proceed on merits of the writ petitions in accordance with law.", the court said.
