Award of compensation depends on several factors. There is no yardstick or schedule prescribed in the Consumer Protection Act . The quantum of compensation awarded varies from Forum to Forum for which it is necessary to know how the amount that you had paid as rental for each of the three months that you had paid for and effective service was not assessible to you.

There are cases where the compensation awarded is reduced or enhanced in appeal. In most of the complaints it is the attitude of the presiding officer of the Forum matters. A subjective viewpoint plays a vital part in deciding the compensation.

You include mental agony in the compensation for increasing you claim.

Now regarding filing of the complaint. Only 1 complaint is to be filed there is no need to to file three separate complaints as the forum will club them together.
