Chandigarh: A consumer forum has asked private sector lender ICICI Bank to pay Rs75,000 along with interest for confiscating and selling vehicle of a person after he failed to deposit an instalment on time, reports PTI.

 

Besides an interest of 10% per annum, the forum also asked ICICI Bank to pay Rs2,000 to the complainant as litigation expenses, a state government spokesperson said.

 

Gurjeet Singh of Muktsar district had alleged that the bank sold his vehicle at a price lower than its cost even though he had offered to pay the instalment, which he could not deposit on time because of remaining stuck in Maharashtra due to transporters' strike.

 

After hearing both the parties, the forum found the bank guilty of negligence and asked it to pay the amount, the spokesperson said.

 

Gurjeet had availed a loan of Rs5.19 lakh from bank's Bhatinda branch in 2004, which was to be paid in 44 monthly instalments.
