Is it feasible to initiate a class suit for damages if a car company shuts operations abruptly in India, like Ford and Datsun?

Mahesh, via email

Autocar India says: Speaking of class-action suits in India, the legal framework for initiating a lawsuit is governed by the Companies Act, 2013. However, class-action lawsuits are not as common here as in countries like the United States. If a car company were to cease its operations abruptly – like Ford and Datsun – whilst leaving customers with unresolved issues or damages, affected individuals may explore legal remedies.

To pursue a class suit, certain conditions generally need to be met: a group of people having a common interest, a similar cause of action and the certification of the class by the court. It is important to consult with a legal professional experienced in Indian law to determine the specific requirements and feasibility of initiating a class action lawsuit in such a situation.
