The National Consumer Commission has asked the Arunachal Pradesh government to pay Rs 1 lakh as compensation to a passenger who claimed he lost his job after his fight was advanced without prior intimation.

The commission held the state guilty of deficiency in service by advancing a flight without intimation to its passengers.

The passenger claimed he lost his job as he could not report to office on time on his first day after missing the flight.

“Preponing the departure time... by 40 minutes without prior intimation to all persons who held confirmed tickets, amounted to deficiency in service,” the commission said.
