If the opposite party fails to respond to the notice within the specified time frame or refuses to resolve the issue, the complainant may file a formal complaint in the consumer court.
What is the time frame to respond to a legal notice??
The time frame for responding to the notice is generally 15 days, but may vary depending on the circumstances of the case. If the opposite party fails to respond within the specified time frame, it may be construed as an admission of the allegations made in the notice.
