Prabhakar purchased an ISI mark electric iron from 'Bharat Electricals'

Prabhakar purchased an ISI mark electric iron from ‘Bharat Electricals’. While using he found that it was not working properly. He approached the seller and complained for the same. The seller satisfies Prabhakar by saying that he will ask the manufacturer to replace this iron.
The manufacturer refused to replace and Bharat Electricals decided to file a complaint in the consumer court. Can ‘Bharat Electricals’ do this? Also explain ‘who is a consumer’ as per Consumer Protection Act, 1986.

Bharat Electricals cannot file a complaint as Bharat Electricals is not a consumer. They bought goods for commercial purpose and not for consumption.
(i) A person, who buys any good or avails any service for a consideration which has been paid or promised, or partly paid and partly promised, or under any scheme of deferred payment.
(it) The term includes any other user of such goods when such use is made with the approval of the buyer. The term ‘consumer’, however, does not include a person, who obtains such goods for resale or for any commercial purpose.
