The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) recently resigned their website. Taking one more steps towards information accessibility, the case status (next date) can now be received by sending an SMS. Another important service started by them is live data of current case number being heard before a bench right now.
Case status by SMS
Here are the steps:
Send an SMS to +917738299899 with the following content
CONFONET 0/0/<case number>
Example: CONFONET 0/0/CC/120/2015
We sent an SMS for case number CC/120/2015 in above mentioned format and received the following reply.
Your Case No: CC/120/2015 is listed on 01/06/2016, for details, please visit http://www.confonet.nic.in
The reply received contains the next date of hearing and a link to the website where more details can be found.
Display board with bench wise listing of hearing cases
The website is also added with lots of information. Another interesting feature added is a display board with live data of item numbers for each Bench. If you are late for the hearing, you can see current item number being discussed for the concerned bench at the moment. Information on the boards is updated every 30 seconds. Live display board can be accessed here: NCDRC Display Board
