Whether the legal services provided by lawyers are covered under the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 (now Consumer Protection Act, 2019). - The court concluded that the services provided by advocates are under a "contract of personal service" due to the significant control clients have over the manner in which advocates render their services. Consequently, such services are excluded from the definition of "service" under the CP Act, 2019, and therefore, a complaint alleging "deficiency in service" against advocates is not maintainable under this Act.
