Re: Responsibility! A fully test and tuned µBITX HF transceiver board (6″ by 5-1/2″).??? #bitx20 #legal

I very much doubt whether the "Sale of Goods Act" applies to India.

Shut up and go away, no-one wants to hear your snivelling drivel anymore.

In good old fashioned English parlance "BUGGER OFF"

How dare you post such horrendous rubbish. You buy things with the sale of goods act of UK which is based upon international contract law.
To say that you are ashamed that I too am British, is tantamount to ridicule!
Mr Farhan is clearly not a poor man, he is an entrepreneur and is playing space games with satellites, while he says that a board that is built and tested cannot be returned.
This is legally untrue, since I have made no modifications to said board. Under the law of both India and that of UK, he would have only the right to assessment of said board and not any denial of responsibility.
This is a built and tested board that has many surface mounted components. It (revision 4) has many known issues, which results in a form of beta testing using the customers to do this work.
Up to a point, this is OK. However, the fact that this board is sold as built and tested and then may be connected together, does not in any way reduce any responsibility for the fitness of the board, nor confer upon Mr Farhan, diminished responsibilities for supply of a working uBITX board together with all its components and advertised functionally of the same. Supply of goods fit for purpose is necessary; that Mr Farhan announced a new board is great for him, as he can then move on to new pastures of revenue with no responsible attitude to sale or after sales support!
Mr Farhan, Please replace the defective boards that you have sold.
I thank you in advance for your cooperation.
