The Medak District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum has directed a private plantation firm to pay a sum of over Rs 1.30 lakh to a farmer for failing to replace the plants which died during the guarantee period. Forty-year-old V Narayana intended to raise some commercial and fruit plantations in his land and approached Ravindra Nursery Gardens in East Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh via phone for supply of plants. On July 4, 2008, the proprietor of the nursery sent his agent Bhaskar Reddy to Narayana’s farm in Medak district and took an order, and promised to deliver the plants by July 22 and collected an advance of Rs 1,000. On August 22, the agent visited Narayana’s field and all the teak plants were planted and on the same day. However, within a month the plants began to die and despite informing the nursery, their agent didn’t turn up. In the meantime all the 1,000 teak plants too died, and Narayana requested the nursery for supply of new teak plants but got no proper response.
