In addition, it was also directed by the District Forum that if the Diploma Certificate/Degree is not issued to the Complainant within one month, then from the date of its decision, i.e. 31.10.2019, the Opposite Parties would pay a sum of Rs. 1000/- per month till the date of actual delivery to the Complainant.
