The Bombay High Court yesterday came down heavily on the state Government for not implementing its 2014 order asking it to raise the remuneration payable to judicial members of consumers forums in the state.

Government pleader Abhinandan Vagyani assured the court that the state was reconsidering its decision taken in Februrary not to raise the remuneration after which the bench said it would not press for contempt action at this stage.

“Nothing has been done to implement the high court order seeking a hike in salaries and allowances to members of consumer forums in the state,” said the bench headed by Justice Abhay Oka while hearing a bunch of petitions filed by Mumbai Grahak Panchayat and others.
